Stage 2 Sock Update
Happy Fathers Day!
I woke up at 6 am, and the sun was already quite high. As we are almost at the solstice, our days are very long right now. I love it. I got right to work on my socks for Stage 2 of Tour de Sock, the Chicane Socks by Debbie O'Neill.
I had finished the legs of one sock and needed one more repeat on the second sock. I started these socks 2-at-a-time, but since they have a cable that crosses back and forth along the side, it was awkward to knit them that way. I separated them after the color work and have been working on them separately.
Here is what they look with the legs finished:
For Fathers Day, we went to the movies to see Now You See Me. I mostly liked it. We almost always go to see movies on special days. We only lived near any family for 4 years of our life as a family, so we have always celebrated by ourselves. And we love movies.
Himes grilled steaks for the family. Mine was perfect. And I made vanilla ice cream which we served with fresh strawberries as the Doc loves strawberry icecream.
I gave him the Braveheart Socks I designed and knit this year, and he seemed very happy. He loves wearing hand knit socks.
I am off work next week, but I really need to get these socks finished. I won't be able to knit much on them tomorrow, so I will really have to crank on Tuesday.
