FO: Ampersand Socks
Pattern: Ampersand Socks by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: White Oaks Studio tvyarn in Breakfast at Tiffany's colorway, a gift from Guinifer
Size: Medium-Largish, they're for me so I just tried them on a lot.
These babies worked up in just over a month, but it was a busy month. They share some similarities with the Jaywalkers, but are definitely able to stand on their own feet. The pattern is easy to memorize and they're written for knitting on two circs - so if you've never done it before, start here.
At the end of June, per my 1st of the year goals, I should have six handknit socks warming feet in the world. I'm proud to say that on this day in mid-June, I've already completed four pairs of socks -- 8 socks!! I'm some sort of sock machine. :)
This Saturday starts the Summer of Socks where I plan to take a big bite out my stash and maybe even start some Christmas knitting -- 'cause let's be honest, how many times will I get to wear wool socks here in Florida??
