Absolutely too warm for knee high socks.
The stocking model was not very happy to do photos but the supervisor did show up as he is way too curious to be left out of anything ...
Do you remember these knee highs? The grey ones got hidden away into a small bag earlier in the spring and the red ones later on after I discovered a knot in the yarn. These grey ones I'm quite happy with. I don't think there are many adjustments to do...(Poor girl has mosquito bites on her legs...)... but the red ones could be better. There is something that bothers me around the gusset and I might need to rework the foot. Otherwise the pattern is enjoyable, it is very easy to keep track on the decreases and to see how far I have got on the leg part.You can tell from the picture that today is no wool sock weather... Even the supervisor did not stay alert and passed out on the dry and yellow grass.
I don't know what it is about stockings that interests me so much now... Each one has really too many stitches and rows but I just know I need to cast on yet another pair.
PS. That was us sitting on the steps in Edinburgh. And no, I did not get to wear my new dress, she chose to be cruising the world with the rest of our clothing while we were in Edinburgh. And you are right, maybe I should not pack in the future but plan for some shopping for the necessary items only and be assured of the fact that very little is actually needed for a succesful trip.
