Yesterday saw the completion of the second Pomatomus sock. Since Hockeyboy was watching Star Trek Voyager with me at the time, he snagged them and tried them on and promptly pronounced them his. The roomy heel, combined with the extraordinary stretchiness of this lace pattern meant that they fit him like a glove . . . er, I mean, a sock.
Being the free spirited knitter that I am, instead of sticking to my goal of knocking off some UFO's, I cast on the hat for Hockeyboy. He is into the Eragon book series right now, so converting this to a dragon scale pattern was a no-brainer. I'm nearing the end of the first pattern repeat and it's going fast.
Hockeyboy has visions of snowboarding in this hat dancing in his head. And it's still July. Go figure.
And I vow to finish a UFO next . . . honest!
