Summer of Socks???
I seem to be on a bit of a sock knitting binge lately. My last three finished projects have been socks. This is a pair of plain vanilla socks made from Nashua Best Foot Forward in the Berry Cobbler color way. I used size 0 Hiya Hiya DPN's. Started June 1, 2010 Finished June 16, 2010.
This is the pair I cast on last night, the marker is where I started this morning. This is Colinette Jitterbug in Mardi Gras. The blue isn't quite right it have more purple and greens mixed in with it. I am using two Knit Picks Options circulars in size 1.5 and the pattern is Stansfield 196 from More Sensational Knitted Socks. I was afraid that the pattern would get lost in the funky yarn but I can see it pretty good so I will continue on.
I am thinking this handspun will be my next pair. It is Gale's Art BFL swirl in the Grace limited edition colorway. I really enjoyed spinning this and I am excited to see how it knits up.
