Today is the first French Toast Alert of the season roundabout Exit 151! It's snowing – intermittent globular snow rather than flakes and unlikely to stick, but inarguably winter precipitation, and before Thanksgiving, no less. Better knit faster on the current sock – mustn't let this singleton grow lonely.
I love this beauteous blue Green Merino Socks by Tuulia Salmela, worked in Fleece Artist Basic Merino, colorway Blue Lagoon. The cuff has an Estonian twisted edge and twisted rib, and the leg is slip stitch honeycomb. The original calls for yarn swags everywhere; because this yarn is pilly and (I fear) may not wear well, I worked the sole plain and discontinued the honeycombs on the top. The stitch count is increased to 64 sts to accommodate my Frankenfeet; the pattern is endlessly adjustable in increments of 4 sts.
Off to have the car brakes looked at. Lately the rear brakes have been screeching, which can't be a good thing. I'm thinking new brake pads, possibly new rotors, sigh.
