I'm halfway through another pair of socks -- maybe more than halfway, since I have one sock completed and one leg halfway finished. I'm using the Dragonfly Djini sock yarn I bought in Alexandria with the Cookie A pattern, Potamtomus socks, which was published on Knitty. The pattern is named after a genus of fish, and it does resemble fish scales.
It's a great pattern, so good that I haven't suffered from second sock syndrome at all. I would be all steam ahead, except that something else is looming.
I bought the Peacock Feathers Shawl from Fiddlesticks Knitting. I'm planning on using Jaggerspun yarn, Zephyr in the Peacock colorway. I've knitted the gauge suggested in the pattern using US size 3 needles. This is, once again, smaller than the suggested needle size -- I knit looser than the usual knitter. I had to order circular needles to begin the project. My handy dandy interchangables from Knitpicks doesn't go smaller than size US 4.
So, this new project may distract me from the Potamtomus socks. Maybe I'll be able to work on them both at the same time?
Pattern: Yarn Harlot's One Row scarf -- my "go to" scarf. I love this pattern. It usually creates an interesting play of color, although this time, not as much. This one is 34 stitches wide (instead of my usual 38) because the yarn is thicker than my usual worsted.
Needles: I just finished this scarf this weekend, and I can't remember if I used size 7 or 8. We'll say 7.
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Maxima, 2 hanks 100 g with 42 grams left over. I'm hoping to use that to make something to match the scarf. Or at least to trim something to match the scarf. Hat? Mittens?
