I mentioned in the last post that I cast on a pair of socks. They are for my Beloved Future Husband whom I refuse to diminish my raving about.
The yarn is from my ever-loving stash (more about the lovely stash later)
The main yarn is Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima 100 Socka 2085.
It is a nice 3-ply weight grey heather composed of three plies of brown-grey wool with two additional plies of black and white, and nylon for durability.
The toe, heel and stripes are knitted in an unidentifiable 3-ply cadet blue variegate.
I used the Turkish parallel needle cast on with two circular needles, size 1.
I finished the toe and a bit of forefoot in one night.
I placed 1x1 twisted rib and then 2x2 twisted rib for 1/2". (Durability in high stress area)
I then switched back to stockinette and added a cute blue stripe for 3 rounds before switching back to grey.
I shall add more later. But for now, back to knitting this sock for my Dear Loving Future Husband!
