Basket Weave Rock

Here's my nearly completed Basket Weave Rib sock (pattern from Sensational Knitted Sock) in Sunshine Yarns Shamrock. The sock has actually knit up very quickly, but unfortunately I fell a little behind on my knitting this weekend.

Friday night we went to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie (great!) and then out to dinner. Saturday, being muggy and hot, we ran errands most of the afternoon and then went out to dinner again (The Celtic Knot in Evanston - great little Irish pub). Sunday was my big knitting day since it was the World Cup final, but as it was again so hot and humid I only knit off and on through the day.

I'm still ok for my goal of finishing 6 pairs this month as long as I don't get distracted:) I have the Peak Experience socks in Lorna's Laces in Bittersweet on the needles still and I made some progress. I'm going to switch out the needles now that I got my second set of dpns from KnitPicks and that should speed the knitting along. I really love these nickel-plated double points!
