TdF KAL Update
Four tiers gone on the Market Squares bag. I've found this to be very simple knitting to do while watching baseball and the biking. I'm liking the way the colors are working, though now that I've used each color at least once, I'm concerned that the team may need reinforcements before the race is over. Stay tuned to see if further color choices are necessary. [As an aside: red is very difficult to photograph.]
And at the risk of sounding disloyal to my Rabobank teammates: hooray for Kim Kirchen protecting the yellow jersey Sunday. I've been a Team High Road/Columbia fan longer than I've been a member of team Rabobank, so I hope I can have a little slack here.
Rally Socks Done
Pattern: My own, based loosely on the Slinky Socks by Rae Blackledge, though these are knit toe-up with a bit of 2x2 ribbing at the ankle just to keep 'em up.
Yarn: Zwerger Garn Opal Cotton #1954
Needle: Knit Picks Harmony 32" 2.5mm
I love these socks, and I love this yarn. Come cooler weather, these'll probably get a lot of wear (not a lot of call for socks when temps don't drop below 100 during the day).
Next up on the sock front is probably a pair of Spring Forward socks in Sockotta #816 (a nice bright apple green).
Oh, and on Friday, it rained:
