Saturday night I settled down with an audio book and finished the left Rick sock.
We're having a comfortable, cool July. Sunday morning the temperature was in the mid 50s (F) when I dressed for church, so I picked out a red sweater and wore my new Rick socks.
I've been surprised that the socks I've been knitting lately are fitting my narrow feet without modifications. I think it's the yarn.
The Slackford Studio Stalwart sock yarn is very smooth, not as fuzzy as Opal and other sock yarns I've used. Maybe it's a little thinner, but I think it's just the smoothness that's resulting in the tighter stitches. I couldn't be happier about being able to knit socks that fit without trying to figure out how to eliminate stitches.
I'm collecting a nice little stash of Stalwart sock yarn as colors appear that I can't resist. This evening I plan to pick out my next Cookie sock project and cast on.
