Finally we have a sunny day, and it’s a balmy 65 degrees. I finished my Caribic socks four days ago, but the skies have been grey ever since. The yarn is Online Supersocke 100, Color 734, Caribic. The colors really do remind me of pleasant days spent on the Caribbean. I knit them in my classic 2 x 2 rib to show off the stripes.
The socks are hung on my drying rack. The part with the bars pulls out from the wall at the top, and is held in that forward position by straps on each top edge. It is by Ballard Designs, and is one of my all-time favorite purchases. (The link is for the drying rack, not just the company. ) Sherry of The Loopy Ewe posted about this rack once, and once I investigated them on Ballard’s site, I convinced my Patron of the Arts to invest.
Speaking of The Loopy Ewe, I’ve reserved a red Namaste Monroe. Notice how her Kindle fits so nicely with her purse things and knitting gear? I’m calling my Monroe a “Nook accessory”, and hope that both will arrive shortly. (The UPS man just came, and I couldn’t resist hovering in the hall to see if my Nook arrived. Nope – a package for our eldest. Rats!)
When the Loopy Ewe elves tell me the bag has arrived at the shop I will add a second sock blocker to the order, taking advantage of one shipping charge. Admittedly, I only use the blockers for photo shoots, but it is frustrating to find a way to show both socks. You’ll just have to take it on faith this time…they’re identical.
