Sock it to me Monday 16

I’m on track to finish my second pair of Pride socks by tomorrow. Yay for chunky yarn!

But the Rollers seem to be taking foreverrrrrrr, and I’m still on the foot of the first one.

I know it’s because I’ve been playing catch up with the CAL blanket and trying not to hurt my shoulder again, but the completer-finisher part of my brain is CROSS that these little socks are taking so much longer than the full sized ones.

I might have to take a break and make some coasters or something, just to get some finishes under my belt!

I finished my first pair of Pride socks and I LOVE THEM!

They turned out slightly more mismatched than I expected (although they’re not actually different shapes – the right side just wouldn’t lie flat), but I think the similarities are enough to tie them together as a pair. Plus they’re comfy and soooo toasty.

There’s still plenty of month left so I made a start on the second lot of yarn I was considering.

These are not going so well.

Curse you, accidental colour pooling.

The yarn did look fairly rainbow-y in the skein, but now they feel more like Hogwarts Houses socks.

Not that I’m against Hogwarts socks, but I was really aiming for a more Pride-y look.

I suppose the spiral stripes look kind of cool, so it’s not really a disaster. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the other sock turns out the same so at least I have a matching pair of not-quite-rainbow socks.

Once this pair is finished that’ll be me out of rainbow-like yarn so I shall finally start my first Rose City Rollers. I’m pretty excited!

I definitely could have made a whole pair of socks in a week, if I’d just paced myself. But that addictive personality came out, I knit non-stop for hours on end, and ended up with a stabby pain in my left shoulder.

So this is what the second sock looks like right now:

It will be finished this week, for reals. Although I’ll also be casting on my pride sock so it likely won’t be til the end of the week.

I’ve downloaded a pomodoro timer to my phone, which will hopefully stop me messing up my shoulder again. Fingers crossed.
