Mountain Colors Bitteroot Socks

I’ve not worked much on the Bearfoot socks, but here’s a pix of my progress so far. I’ve still got several inches to go on the leg before I start the heel. This is wonderful wool to knit up. I got mine from Jimmy Beans. Even though they are in Nevada and I’m in Virginia, it only takes a very few days to receive an order from them. Excellent service!

So what have I been doing instead of knitting on those socks? Trying to talk myself into knitting a shawl, but I can’t find a pattern that meets my needs: simple, no point down the back, mostly garter stitch, big enough to cover my shoulders and upper arms. I’m not much of a designer, but it looks like I’m going to have to give it a try, if I want a shawl that works for me. Darn! I wanted to be able to wear it when we go to Florida next month. I’m such a slow knitter that I rather doubt that’s going to work out now.

  1. The socks turned out really cool. Now, if the weather will be somewhat cooperative, I will get them a test run.
