I've been busy working on house stuff and on a project that will be featured on Friday, but managed to squeeze in a few rounds on a new pair of socks. The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Mediumweight, in the colorway "Fire on the Mountain." I got it at Stitches East back in 2010, and I'm finally using it! I'm participating in a Socks that Rock knit along with the Knitabulls podcast for the month of March. Check out these gorgeous colors:
The pattern is Ampersand by Kirsten Kapur, and is written specifically for Socks that Rock Mediumweight, which is nice because I'm not used to knitting sport weight socks. They are coming along really fast since they're knit on size 3 needles. I'm not a huge fan of metal needles, but I'm using them for this project because they're what I had in the right size, and I'm not spending any money right now as we prepare for the move.
