My Red Sox

fullsizerender-97

For every birthday, holiday, or just because, I knit things for my friends and family. Almost always, I’m rushing to finish the gift. For some reason, I cannot for the life of me mail birthday presents or cards on time. Why? I do not know. I need help in this department. But at least I send them eventually, right? RIGHT.

Anyway, TODAY is my college roomate (and very close friend’s) 25th birthday. I didn’t start a gift until 3 days ago, but I’m chugging along! She is a fan of the Boston Red Sox, and so, I am doing my part to make sure she has a full wardrobe of Red Sox gear (she has a snuggie and it is great). I’m using the Hyak pattern from my last post but these ones have a very different look. The yarn is Berroco Comfort which is super soft & durable, but also happens to be very cheap! I like it when these things work out for my bank account. (Patting myself on the back for this one). Again, I would highly recommend this pattern for someone who wants to get into sock knitting because you get to use worsted weight yarn and size 4 & 5 needles! They go so quickly! In this case, I added a third color and I’m really liking how they look.

Hopefully I can finish these this weekend and mail them out after a quick wash & block!
