Treadmill socks

Now that Jasmine is 6 months old, I have been trying to do some exercise in the morning. I need to lose a few more inches to be the size I'm making my Vivian!! lol. It's the middle of Summer, but I have a treadmill and an air conditioner, so I really have no excuse not to.

Byron thinks the treadmill is his, but he is (finally) staying away from it while I walk. Instead he annoys Jasmine until she cries and I have to get off for a minute. While I walk, I've been knitting socks. It's plain stocking stitch on two circulars, so it's pretty good tready-knitting. Here is number 1 Neon Sock. I turned the heel on number 2 today. (Check out that massive 25cm foot. Yes, it's mine.)


It's Neon from Bendigo Woollen Mills, and it doesn't look like much in the ball, but I am loving how it knits up! It's got three plies, and from what I can tell, one stays green-blue, one stays light blue and the other has long color changes through pink, purple, orange and yellow. It's self-striping in a very subtle way, and I love it. The colorway is called Lagoon, and it really does make me think of a reflection.


Pretty. sigh. Makes me want to go swimming in a little billabong somewhere. Doesn't that look cool, Tara?
I have more Neon, and now it's going to be more socks! When I finish some of my WIPs, that is.

You're gonna end up with sooo many socks by winter you won't need to buy any. ha ha. You can knit me a pair for my birthday. I like the look of them.

I love those sock colours, very caribbean island. Not only will you have loads of socks, but you'll be as skinny as a rake!
