Well, I thought I was getting close to 8 stitches per inch, and I cast on the recommended number of stitches in the gorgeous Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Mediumweight sock yarn, tried a slightly more complex pattern than my last pattern attempt.. and it's way too big. It almost fits my partner's foot, and is too large for mine and way too far along to rip out and start over, so I'm going to give this pair away once I can find a suitable foot in the family, and buy a new skein to start another pair for myself. Live and learn. Nice thing about socks, too.. they're quick to knit, and I can give them away easily.

I've been almost compulsively needing a project in my hands, either to combat a busy schedule and harried mind, or because I've been snowed in. I was able to finish one of the pair of socks I started, which felt great. Two more project pairs to go..

Finally sat down behind my Lendrum again yesterday, got a bit more of the laceweight Corriedale/Merino cross fleece added to the bobbin, once it's done it will be plied with the Abstract Fibers BFL I've already spun to create another chunk of gorgeous sock weight yarn.

Small progress..
