Socks a Tad on the Small Side

I was moving right along on the KPPPM socks. I was working both of them at the same time, but I tried one on today and the 60 cast on was way, way too small. So, I frogged it and re-cast on 72 (it was that much too small). I feel like the new cast on will fit much better. I'll move this one along to a point where I can try it on, then I'll frog the other one.

I'm in MN tonight and it is cold - COLD. It's a cold like I don't know that I've ever seen. When we landed it was -7 degrees. I've been out a couple of times late in the night for presschecks and I'm sure it's colder than that.

It is so cold it hurts to breath. I'm really looking forward to going home tomorrow. A little knit time on the plane should put me back on track with my sock.

Pics of the Sock and More Hats

KPPPM sock

Here's a picture of the start of my Koigu sock. I just love the color scheme. It's not what I would normally pick and that means these socks will look different from any other socks in my drawer.

Three more hats The cotton one is Fiesta. The pink is a glittery fushia fun fur. It's call Fushia Fantasy. And the third one, well that was tough. I already have "Something About Hairy" Like twins they look the same, but they are not. So I'm thinking will come to me.

Nine Hats and Counting

I have nine hats done for the Children's Medical Hospital. No pictures yet because I'm too busy knitting. I have 5 fun fur hats and 4 cotton hats.

I also started my KPPPM socks. I've been savoring that moment. Saving it for a nice long plane trip which I was supposed to take this week. As it turns out, the trip was postponed until next week so I just knit on the socks for the fun of it. I'm really liking how they look. Mostly it's the yarn because the pattern is just a 4-2 rib, but the Koigu is lovely. I'll post pictures of the sock in progress this weekend. In the meantime, here's a picture of the yarn.

It's cold here again. It snowed yesterday. So, if I knit this weekend, I have to knit on DS#1's clogs. I have one sole done. Did I mention I am so over clogs. And now when I tell my husband I am over clogs, he says he wants a pair - aaarrggghh! I can't tell if he's joking or serious.
