Fall is in the air, so it’s the perfect time for a new pair of socks to come off the needles.
These socks are called the Colorado Sunset socks. That’s because these socks began as a picture I took last spring.
A couple of days later I set out to recreate the sunset colors in yarn.
The sock blank looked promising.
The socks delivered on that promise.
Back in May, I cast on a baby blanket for a close friend of mine.
Two weekends ago, the blanket looked like this:
This was also just seven days before her baby shower.
All that week I came home from work and knit the evening away. On Saturday (the day before the shower), I knit all day and far into the night. I took a four hour break to sleep and continued knitting on Sunday morning. 30 minutes before I had to leave for the shower, I finished the blanket:
The mother loved it and it was a big hit at the shower.
I tend to procrastinate, but I’ve never cut a knitting deadline this close. I still can’t believe I finished it.
Details are on my Ravelry page.
I haven’t knit since I cast off this blanket, but I’ve been eyeing all the socks I have in progress.
I think the sock bug is about to bite me.
