Orange!


Another sock, knit in some delicious orange Trekking XXL. I am enjoying the subtle striping.


A detail to show the Baby Cables a bit closer. No cable needle needed.

Liz K. asked about using leftovers for baby socks and how I figure out if I have enough - grams or yardage. I'm not that organized, I just guess a size to make and, so far, I have been lucky. The rustic baby socks were a bit of a cliff hanger, I ended up with less than a yard of yarn left.


The hounds went to Pets at Play today and Maria Lyn sent this picture of Dogwood with some pals. You can see part of Peach in the picture. Stewart posted the pictures of Dogwood on The Yarn Lounge blog. He looks sweet, as usual, and she included a shot of his very long legs.

My verification word on the first post was "zhcra" - I think that's a variation of lycra, but one that zips in rather than stretches out, lol!

The socks look darling. I wish Baxter could go to Pets at Play. Everyone is having so much fun! He loved doggie day camp in SA but I haven't found one here yet.

I love those orange socks, and I am NOT an orange person. What pattern did you use, or did you adjust a basic pattern for yourself? I have two skeins of Trekking I'm cherishing, but I have one sock for DD almost done, one of another pair cast on last night, and another skein lurking in wings for a break. Will not be tempted...

I cannot get enough of those orange socks. Those are my favorite ones you've made, but I am clearly biased!! bri
