Oh Canada (Socks)

I am crusing along on the second Canada sock -- colorwork is done, heel flap is nearly complete. It's all smooth sailing from here.

(Remember these socks? You may have seen the first one featured in the Daily Chum a few weeks ago.)

I think I'm getting better at this stranding thing. Although the stitches are still a little wonky, I'm getting faster and it's feeling more natural to knit with both hands. Plus, I think that wonkiness will even out with blocking. Here's tonight's artsy-fartsy shot:

On tonight's agenda? Finally winding my August STR and the Zen Yarn Garden that arrived last week and turning the heel of this baby. Then sweater? shawl? sleep? I'm saving my knitting energy for tomorrow night.


  1. I know I'm bringing two books tomorrow night. Knitting wise? No clue what I'm bringing. I'll figure it out today ... hopefully after a good night's sleep!

  2. Beautiful colorwork!

    Pretty Canada socks! and yep - the more you do it (stranded knitting), the better you get!
