Two Toe Tuesday: Gretel Demands Equal Screentime

Tomato Maelstrom

The first thing I did after monogomously finishing the Olympic Orange Oolongs? Work on almost every sock WIP that I had within reach. I worked on the Summer Sky Socks, which are meant to be finished this week (maybe they'll be anklets?), and on the M's socks. Last but not least, I finished the first of the Tomato Maelstrom socks that I started just before the Ravelympics kick off. Yes, I know that only makes one toe. I may start the second right away, I really like the way this one turned out and it was relatively fast to knit. The yarn is Sundara Sock in Heirloom Tomato, and the pattern is Maelstrom by Cookie A, from the Twist Collective. What more can I say? Love this pattern!

p.s. This is really an unflattering angle for Gretel (and me, really), which isn't fair because she has lost a whole pound in the last month or so. She could still stand to lose another pound or two, but she's not as fat as she looks here.

I love red socks, but those are beautiful. Might just have to buy that pattern.

Beautiful sock. I love that color! Gretel is beautiful too. I could just kiss her little face. Can you tell that I own a dachshund too, lol.
