And here is the progress on #1 Son’s socks!

This is Trekking XXL in colorway 101. I’m using my standard sock non-pattern with a 3×1 rib.

Have you ever noticed that guys have really big feet?

Sorry for the rather dark picture. At 6:00 AM on a gloomy autumn morning, there’s no natural light anywhere. And the sun is just about to dip below the mountain for the winter, stealing my light until next spring.

Shelly notes:

that’s an interesting structure on the Karabella Aurora 8. It looks at first like a single, but then up close it looks ??? very plied, or cabled?

Aurora 8

It’s plied. A lot. I unwound the end a little in this picture so that you can see the structure of it. It’s not cabled at all.

It’s 100% merino and very, very soft. I’ve seen other blankets made from this yarn and they’re really snuggly. Just the thing for a cold winter evening.

By the way, Shelly, will you be at Oregon Flock & Fiber this year? If so, I’ll come by and say howdy.

On an entirely different note, I’m not sure what prompted this post two years ago today. But I’m pleased to announce that I don’t have a pile of left-over parts. And, although I’m not yet quite willing to admit that it was all fun, it certainly has been rewarding.
