We started getting more snow last evening and even more snow today.
Snow days = Knitting Days to me. So, I planned out my day, so I could knit. I did a few things around the house this morning, then put together a tossed salad to go with tonight's lasagna dinner. The rest of the afternoon was mine to knit to my heart's content.
I finished the Basket Weave socks from Knit Socks Whatever the Yarn. I started the first sock in the evening of Feb. 16th & I finished it on the evening of the 19th....a record for me. I CO the second sock on the 20th and I just finished it before dinner tonight on the 26th. I think that this is the quickest pr. of socks that I have ever completed. It really helped that the pattern was super easy and very easy to memorize, too.
I knitted them with yarn that I had in my stash for quite a while. I used Navy & leftover variegated sock yarn. I think both were Regia Sock yarn, but I can't remember where I ordered it from, it's been too many years. It does feel good to finally use yarns from my stash.
I think that these are the heaviest and the warmest socks that I've made and owned. My only complaint is that they are dog hair magnets.
Now...I have to decide what to knit next. We're still snowed in. I got 2 catalogs in the mail today. One from Knit Picks and the other from Webs, sounds like a start of a good evening.

It's been awhile since I've knitted socks. It's not that I didn't want to, but I just hadn't seen a pattern and/or yarn...
