MadelineTosh. It’s either Prairie, or Lace. I can’t remember which, and of course, I no longer have the label.
Pattern calls for only 450 yards of Lace weight.
US size 5 needle.
I have too many projects going, so I’ve no idea when I’ll finish this.
But, it’s the journey. Or, so I tell myself
Or, in this case, sock.
2nd sock syndrome, coming up.
This was a fun and interesting sock pattern. I do believe I’m going to cast on the 2nd sock any day now.
Also, because you decrease to form the pattern at top of foot, you increase on those same rows, on the bottom of foot.
This makes the sock fit really nice! It’s like custom shaping for the sock.
I used Loops & Threads Luxury Sock that I snatched from the bay of E.
60% wool, 30% Nylon and 10% cashmere. Color: % Redwoods
Very nice stuff, but we shall see how it holds up. Uber soft but feels strong.
and I’m awe-struck. Granted, that’s not a difficult state for me to get in.
This pattern went in my queue and I even checked out the yarn on Etsy.
How cool that you get two gradient cakes of the yarn so each sock will work up pretty much the same??
Tres’ cool, says I.
On learning fair Isle. I’m knitting with both hands. Flickin’ and pickin’.
A tad slow with the right hand, but I’ve got the hang of it.
I know, long time between posts.
I’ve got one word for ya.
I can’t stop making them. It’s all I’ve been doing for what, three weeks??
I did just buy the Leftovers Cowl pattern by Wendy D. Johnson. I’d really like to get comfortable with knitting with two colors. *cough* By comfortable, I mean learn how.
The pattern is on sale, $3 instead of $5, until the 23rd of February
So my conundrum is that I’ve made so many hexi’s with my sock leftovers, that I’m probably gonna have to get more. Eh, I can still stash dive for most of it. I think.
