Wow, I can’t believe it has been 4 weeks since my last post! Eeek!! I wish I could say I have a bunch of FOs… but I don’t. 😦 Though I have been working on a couple of things. I finished another pair of yoga socks. I like these much better than the previous ones that I made using the stretchy yarn.
This was done using Yoga Socks #153 by Patons. And I used Plymouth yarn Sockotta in pink/green/orange. I loved this yarn!! Too bad it is discontinued!! Thankfully there was enough left over so I can squeeze out another pair of socks & I do have another skein of this but in blues & greens in my stash!! 🙂
The pattern is easy to remember, 8 row repeat. It looks great & is nice & stretchy! I loved the no heel aspect of it! They knitted up pretty quickly too! I hope the recipient loves them as much as I enjoyed knitting them! I’m going to have to make more of these! LOL
Don’t you just love the pattern that the repeat rows made!
I also decided since I had some left over neon sock yarn to make a pair of ankle socks. I’m not really using a pattern for this. Just kinda doing a normal vanilla ribbed sock. I really was not happy with the previous pattern I used for this yarn & I’m still upset over how they came out. So I decided I was going to reduce the number of stitches that I cast on & a smaller needle. I’m using size 1 DPN & I cast on 52 stitches. I’m hoping to finish these this week. But so far I’m happy with the fit & the way they came out.
I’m actually loving ankle socks! They knit up so quickly!! I will probably start making more of these with left over sock yarn. 🙂
And in the last 4 weeks since my last blog post we also were cruising the Caribbean! We had such a great time! Visited some beautiful places! Soaked up the sun on some of the most gorgeous beaches! My absolute favorite spots were Grand Turk & Aruba! I should probably do a blog post about the trip because I want to share my pictures & the experience so maybe if I have time in the coming weeks I will do that. But in the mean time here are a few pictures of the stunning beaches!:
I have never seen such beautiful water in my life! It was amazing!!! I didn’t want to leave!
Our next stop was Dominican Republic
The people on this island were the funnest & friendliest people!
Next up was Curacao
And Aruba! My most favorite spot!!
Isn’t it just beautiful!
