I finished a pair of socks a week or two ago.
Yarn: Trekking XXL in some unknown colorway which never made it into my stash page on Ravelry. label is long gone. the creatively named "100". The red is Lang Jawolle, color 60, bright red. Toes and heels reinforced with the matching Lang reinforcement thread.
Pattern: Wendy's Toe-Up Generic sock pattern.
Needles: US#0 for foot and ankle, US#1.5 for leg.
Looking around for some portable and mindless knitting for Saturday's lectures, I decided another pair of socks, this time knit with yarn that has been marinating in the stash since the first time I went to Yarnover — April, 2007.
Want to know how much I can knit between 9:15 and 4:15 with a 20-minute break for lunch? This much.
The yarn is Austermann Step with Jojoba, and the needle is a US#0 from Webs, a Knitter's Pride Karbonz circ. It is a delightful needle with a very sharp point. Toe is reinforced with pale blue Lang reinforcing yarn, heel with light gray. I actually started them at knitting group on Friday night but forgot the reinforcement thread; frogged and restarted on Saturday morning.
I probably won't work on them much in the next week or so because I have another Sooper Sekrit Project. I don't think the recipient reads the blog, but I am going to keep it sooper sekrit just in case.
A photo of Sooper Sekrit proje–, er, the yarn for SSp (it is a deeper red, but we all know how difficult it is to get an color-accurate photo of anything red):
There are a couple other minor projects OTN but I'll save them for later. Also, I made a pair of mittens for Adrienne's mitten tree but totally forgot to photograph them. The yarn was Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in a soft green called Asparagus (not currently available); the mittens were totally plain and sized for an 8-yo. Use your imagination.
