OTN - started a pair of socks with this yarn, Mega Boots Stretch.

Looks like woolly sock weather's afoot ...

... yesterday we had a high temp of 23C which lasted a couple of hours, however, that changed quickly. At bedtime it was snowing, summer and winter on the same day! - photos taken this morning, 9:47 am MDT.

Forgot one ... & finished one

The River Rapids Socks
Specs' ...
- 2-at-once Magic Lo
op method
- 2.0mm Knitpicks Classic Circulars
- Gauge: 10 sts
- one repeat added for a total of 9 rpts over 72 sts
- heel changed to a no-wrap eye of partridge short row heel, (SRH),
over 36 sts + 2 sts that were inc on the row just before starting the heel and subsequently decreased after the heel was done
NB: next time I must remember to 1. start the eye of partridge st ~1/2" before the start of the SRH so the sock will hug the back/top of the heel and 2. do the 2-st dec later for a roomier instep.)
