For my first sock, I used BellaModen's superwash merino in the black beauty colorway with a basic sock pattern and size 2 needles.
For the second sock, I used Lisa Souza's Sock Merino in the little devil colorway with the no purl monkey pattern and size 2 needles.
I am ready to cast on for my next two pair of socks. I am going to use a basic sock pattern with both and size 2 needles. The yarn I will be using is The Sanguine Gryphon Eidos handpainted sock yarn in the Pythagoras color and J Knits Superwash me sock in the Reno color. I just recently got the J Knits yarn and I'm anxious to try it out.
I am thrilled because I reached the halfway point in my goal for reading 65 books by the end of the year. By the end of June I read 34 books. I recently finished the following:
Full Bloom by Janet Evanovitch and Charolotte Hughes
Q is for Quarry and R is for Ricochet by Sue Grafton
Married Lovers by Jackie Collins
Demon Rumm by Sandra Brown
Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
Monday I start back at work. I will only be working one day a week, but I am still sad. It will cut into my knitting time and soon I will also be teaching two days a week. It really is great to not have to work, but I am kinda looking forward to getting out in the working world again.
