I cast on for sock 2 on the train this morning so I'm ahead of schedule on the timetable for these (trying to finish them by Fathers Day - 3 Sep).
Flush with the satisfaction of finishing a sock, I then whizzed through the second half of this pair of mittens that I've been working on intermittently. There's a few fingerless mitten patterns floating about at the moment. If I hadn't have already cast on for these Tiger Paws, then I would have been trying these fetching versions.
The Tiger Paw pattern is from the most recent issue of Yarn (Issue 3, Winter 2006). The yarn is Filatura di Crosa Zara which is deliciously soft. I knit these on 3.75mm dpns which felt quite clumsy after using such fine needles for sock knitting.
Next in the sock queue? S wants a pair of "Ladies Useful Stockings" from Knitting Vintage Socks. Then I'm going to make RPM for myself. After that.... I'm open to suggestions... although I'm keen to work my through a few other patterns in Knitting Vintage Socks and I've got a stockpile of sock patterns from Knitty and a few other spots on the interweb.
My name is Paisley, I am a sock knitting addict.
