Lest you think my recent bout of startitis is causing me to abandon my previous project, let me assure you I am still working on the sleeves for Tubey.
All 5’3″ inches of them. (Thank God I’m short, that’s all I’m saying.)
Especially since I just bought a new purse as part of the slightly disturbing girlification that has occurred since I moved here.
It’s a very cute purse,but there’s not whole lot of room in there. What I needed was something small. Something portable. Something that didn’t require a lot of complicated measuring or counting or switching of yarns.
What I needed was a commuter sock.
I cast on for this sock using Knitpicks Memories in Rocky Mountain Dusk (I think–it was stashed and they don’t seem to carry it any more). It’s a basic, plain sock that requires very little thinking on my part.
I used the Yarn Harlot‘s sock recipe from Knitting Rules as a guide and cast on 70 sts on US3s, and knit about an inch in 3×2 rib for the cuff, and now it’s just plain knitting for the leg. It couldn’t be simpler, which is just what I need on my commute.
Plus, it’s the perfect way to celebrate Socktoberfest!
