I hope you're doing well in times of uncertainty.
Alex and I have been in full quarantine mode here in the Pacific Northwest. So far we've gotten to know our Wii games a lot better, spent a lot of time hanging out with Yoga with Adriene on YouTube and done a ton of experimental cooking. Today we took naps and made a huge batch of double chocolate ice cream.
As far as projects go, I've been working away on my Little Wave Cardigan, finishing up my super secret test knit for Making Stories and blocking up this fun pair of 70's socks for Alex's Dad.
These puppies are knitted from leftover scraps of KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Tweed. I used the pattern "A Simple Knitted Sock Pattern" by Anna Hobbes for Canadian Living Magazine.
These are knitted from the top down, I used a size 7 needle to cast on and work the first 3 rows so they would have an extra slouchy cuff then switched to a size 6 for the body. I also worked most of the sock in size XL but worked the heel in L so as to not make it too deep.
These magic socks are headed off to Alex's parents place in Virginia next week. I sure hope his Dad likes them and doesn't think they're a 70's tweed nightmare.
I'm almost finished with my Little Wave Cardigan so you'll be seeing pics of him soon! I'll try to update more since we clearly have more time on our hands.
What are you working on during quarantine times?
