I’ve started the sleeves.  I’m beginning to wonder if I am going to have enough yarn.  Some hanks were a little thicker so my calculations may be off.  I may have to make the bands on the front out of something else.  I just need to match one of the colors.  It shouldn’t be that hard.  I didn’t get any work on it today.  It was too hot to have all that in my lap.  I went looking for Halloween sock yarn.   I thought I had some orange, white and black, but I couldn’t find it, but I did find some orange and pink that will have to do.  I’m going to make the Latvian Socks from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush.  They are supposed to be natural in color.

This pattern is in Knitted Jackets by Cheryl Oberle.  I bought the yarn several years ago at Maryland Sheep and Wool.  It’s hand dyed and hand spun.  I tried several different patterns before I finally decided on this one.  The yarn is a bit rough so it had to be a jacket rather than something close to the skin.  So far the gauge is spot on and I like the texture.
