There was a Blue Moon on December 31st and Tina from Blue Moon Fiber Arts thought it would be fun to celebrate the full moon by having a world-wide cast on. I went diving in my BMFA stash to pick out a blue yarn for the Blue Moon cast on. I decided on Bella Coola in lightweight.
I picked Angee from my Sock Innovation book by Cookie A. I really liked the pattern, but I found that I really needed to pay attention to it. It wasn't difficult, I just couldn't quite memorize it and had to keep referring to the chart which slowed me down a bit.
I knit the lower sock first, then made all the hats, and then came back to do the 2nd sock. Clearly my tension changed from sock 1 to sock 2, but I decided I didn't care enough to try to match it. I'm just thrilled to have finished something for myself! I think I'll wear them tomorrow!
