Warm green socks, all done

IMG_0084I finished these – they will be very cozy come winter.  This is Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Heather yarn and it’s on the thick side of fingering.  I normally cast on 60-64 stitches for a sock in fingering weight yarn – but these fit with only 54 stitches cast on.  Truly, I think this yarn should be labeled sportweight.IMG_0083

The pattern is “Undulating Rib Socks” from Favorite Socks.IMG_0088

And just to show that sometimes I make something besides socks and other knitted objects, here are a few zinnias that started blooming last week.  I think of these as a late summer flower, but like everything else, they are ahead of schedule this year.  They are so cheerful and bright when everything else is wilting in the heat.

In other news, I finished the Color Affection shawl!  But it has to be blocked and photographed, so you’ll have to wait…
