Latest socks.

This pair of tube socks has been in the works for quite some time but were finished this morning. A little bit of ripping back when I first started them [too tight] and at the very end [reshaping the toe decreasing for a more pleasing look] but, otherwise, a pretty fast and satisfying project when I could just work on them.

April Socks - updated

These are the latest socks. They took exactly 4 weeks to knit; the second in only 10 days. I would've been faster if I'd not been reading so much. LOL
The yarn is from Mary Maxim and was a gift. These socks will be given to a friend who admires the colors. Not that I'm too butch to wear them myself.

Recent knitting

Well... I finished two pair of socks within the past couple of weeks - having joined a "12 Months, 12 Socks" knit along sponsored by WY Fiber Skeinks [a Ravelry group I'm in]. I hope to post photos soon.

The first was a plain knit pair in Austermann Step that I really liked knitting with. Very soft and great color gradations.

Spirit Day

Hi everyone -
Putting on my social justice hat for a moment to encourage everyone to wear purple tomorrow in support of at-risk youth, especially those who are LGBTQ, for what is now known as "Spirit Day".
I first mentioned this about 4 years ago here on MWK and decided it was time to bring it up again.

Anyone else notice this?

Yesterday, I logged into MWK and it came up with a bright red border and lettering in the format. No profile photos and the member count and Shout box weren't visible. Everything else was there even though you had to look at the linkups to find them. I noticed that Darrel and Admin were also logged in at the same time as I but, given the current security concerns on the internet, I figure an update may have been in progress. Anyhow, I'm glad everything is back to normal and hope I didn't inadvertently get scammed.
