Equinox

Happy spring! Although it isn’t too warm yet here in Port Hope, with nighttime temperatures well below freezing and daytime temperatures only a degree or two above zero.

It’s almost the end of quarter 1 of the finish a long and I have completed my rhubarb socks. I tried a tubular cast-off and they are still a little tight at the top but it is definitely a really nice finish to the cuff. I had lots of yarn left over from this skein from @indigodragonfly, I made them a short crew length since I have muscular calfs.

11 rows of k2p2 ribbing, then a row to swap the purls to k1p1, followed by k1 sl1 for s row then sl1 p1, twice, and finally the grafting row to cast off.

I definitely plan to have one more finish this quarter, my summer solstice quilt just needs binding and all the ends worked in.

Linking up to To Do Tuesday with Christine to track my progress this week.
