March Socks

There is a bit of a plague going through my house right now.  I downloaded the Fish Lips Kiss heel and discovered it was 16 pages long.  I am not healthy enough to attempt a 16 page heel pattern.  I debated what to do next and then decided to cast on my March socks and work on them until I'm feeling better.
Not the best picture but it'll do.  The yarn is Lemonade Shop Sparkle Sock in the Rainbows and Clovers colorway.  The pattern is ZigZagular Socks by Susie White.

February Socks

I got a little bit of a jump on my February socks.
I'm knitting Vanilla Latte Socks by Virginia Rose-Jeanes using my Yarntini CYO.  Nice and easy.  I'm going to try the Fish Lips Kiss heel in black.  Bring on February!

Bonus Socks Done

I started these socks back in 2012 and I'm very happy to have them done.
I think I got frustrated because the pattern called for an anatomical toe.  This time I finished with a regular toe.  The left sock has a three pattern repeats and a few rows of twisted rib.  I used a Strong heel instead of the heel flap in the pattern.  

The yarn is Socks that Rock Mediumweight in Sky Blue.  I used about 119 grams.

February Sock Yarn

I finished knitting my bonus January socks today.  I just need to kitchner the toe and weave in the ends.  I worked on my orange to red shawl some more but I'm itching to get some more socks on the needles. 
This is my February socks yarn.  It's Yarntini Premium Sock in a custom colorway from 2014. I believe the colors are margarita, key lime, lemon drop and syrah.

Friday Knitting

I'm making progress on the left Bonus January sock.
I've slowed down a little on these.  My hands have been stiff from the tight gauge and I know I'm going to be done before the end of the month.  I've been working on my Frisson scarf when I have more time to knit for a change of gauge.

Bonus January Sock

The good news is sock one is done!  The bad news is I frogged sock two.  The weird news is when I counted stitches for the first sock I found I had cast on 58 stitches but there were 68 stitches at the toe.  I have no idea why.  Since the sock is a little big I decided to split the difference and cast on 62 for the second sock.  I'm a little bummed because I was hoping these would be a quick project to finish.  But they'll be done soon enough.
