Mis-timed knits…

October 3, 2011

The temperature here is in the high 20s (Celsius, that is, because otherwise that would obviously not be good at all…) And, despite the autumn leaves, everyone’s wondering round all bemused and smiley, hoping this in the Indian summer we haven’t seen for years come to atone for the summer that wasn’t.

So, of course, I’ve just finished knitting a pair of socks.

At the moment I just look at these and laugh. The comic mis-timing of the whole enterprise! Woolly socks, and just when I’ve had to dig my sandals out of hibernation! Ha. But then, there’s a corner of my mind that’s cosy in the knowledge that, come the cold dark days, these socks will be waiting, all snug and smug and ready.

The pattern is “Fenestra” by Jeanie Cartmel (Ravelry link requires login), and is knitted toe up. A lot of very intricate sock patterns I come across are generally written top down, and I much prefer to knit toe-up. And this is such a clear, well written pattern- and, providing you concentrate (and don’t talk, or breathe, or even think about anything else), not really as difficult as it looks.

The yarn is Wollmeise Sockenwolle in the colour “Blaue Tinte”- which is not an entirely different colour to the sky here today…

Right. My feet are about to mutiny unless I put them back into sandals where they belong…

    When it finally is cold enough to enjoy wearing them, be sure to roll up a cuff so you can show those babies off properly! Just lovely.

      Thanks so much, Jo Ann! And yes- rolling up a cuff (or two!) might fit the bill. Or I could invest in a pair of short cropped trousers for sock-flashing purposes :)
