6.21. As soon as the yarn hit our LYS, I bought it and cast on a pair of socks for Tony that same evening.

6.30. There is something very satisfying about knitting a pair of socks without pattern. I have Judy’s magic cast-on (for toe-up socks) and the FLK Heel well memorized and turned the two heels today :) Just doing a simple 1x 1 ribbing. Total stitches 64 (2x32).

The yarn The yarn is a DREAM to work with. I will make more socks with this yarn and perhaps also the 15 Karat poncho..?

I knitted THREE socks, thus the “plus one”
May 19.2020: And then Tony lost one of the socks in the Hudson River. It was hot and he took shoes and socks off. Because he needed to slip on the shoes sometimes when reeling in a fish, the socks sat there on a rock on the riverbank until a gust of wind blew one into the river …just while he was reeling in a fish. I can just picture the whole scene and had to laugh about it .
Luckily I have enough remnants to knit a replacement sock. It will not look the same , but close enough, especially the parts you can see. One sock weighs 38 g and I have 10 g of this same color yarn left.
6.10.2020. The replacement sock is finished and when worn with shoes, they do go together.
