Pattern: Lilac Socks by Jeanie Townsend
Yarn: Knitpicks Stroll in the Dusk Colorway
Needles: Size 2 DPNs
My second pair of March Sockdown socks are done! Unfortunately, these socks suffered in comparison to the other socks I did for March, both patternwise and yarnwise. I actually feel a little bad about that, because this is a good pattern, with a nice, longer pattern repeat, and good variation. As for the yarn, I suspect this yarn will wear much better, with less careful care, than the lovely silk stuff I used for my other March socks, so hopefully, I'll be getting enjoyment out of these for a long while to come.
I've decided to take a break from the April Sockdown challenge. I have a number of patterns to choose from, but I've decided I need to make the rest of April "Clean out Megan's knitting basket" month instead. I have the Haruaha scarf, which is pretty close to done, two hats worth of yarn, and the nearly completed Cable Swing Cardi to decide what to do with. I think the first priority will be the scarf, followed by the sweater. If nothing else, I need to decide if I'm brave enough to frog it back and try for some size modifications, or if I'm better off frogging it completely, and starting something new.
