Rainy Days and Mondays....
It's Day #3 of grey skies, dampness and yuck! So thought I'd post my STR Rare Gems socks finished last March.
I always take two projects to knit when we're traveling. This was the sock pair I used as traveling knitting to Texas last Spring. The second sock became a FO outside Austin while visiting daughter Beth and family. They're photographed in Blake's blooming pear tree the first week of March. Beth really liked the pair, so they were gifted to her.
The STR Rare Gems colorway is not really a colorway....Rare Gems are the BMFA's 'mistakes', so no two skeins are necessarily alike. I knit a 2x2 rib at the top, the legs are knit 4 purl 2 rib all on 0 dpn's.
We'll just skip over yucky winter weather and go straight to Spring happy dances, OK?
