Return of the Red

I took some better-lit (whatever else might be said about them) pictures of those socks.

These are Knitpicks Memories (again!), this time in Geranium. They do seem to be striping well - I've found that Memories does really well at not pooling, as long as your stitch count is consistent. The pooling I had on the one Cape Cod sock must have been due to an odd number of stitches on one sock - that's why I'm doing this pair 2 at a time!

This is fantastically bright - my camera can't handle the electric redness of it. It's Schaefer Anne, and the colorway's named Frank's Folly. (The toe is Louet Gems.) It's striping a little too, the camera just isn't able to pick it up - it varies from plain old red to a kind of electric, brighter than hot pink red. I'm obsessing over the red lately, and it's reminding me of an old coworker who was a little "woo-woo" urging me to meditate on something red when I was having trouble with anemia. Miss you Nuriya!
Anyway, as is probably evident from this post, I'm feeling much much better, and it's looking like tomorrow's the day to drag myself kicking and screaming back to work.
