I have to admit, I like sock modeling ala Laurie style. Hannah was kind enough to model a few pictures this afternoon of my finished socks.
All in all, this is an enjoyable knit. Perfect pattern for car knitting as you get the rhythm down very quickly. Six of this and six of that...and so on and so on.
Right now I have a hat on the needles for Jean and of course my long term project, Twisted Vines, but I do like to have a few smaller pieces to fill in.
The purple yarn is a new yarn that I have had for a little while, but have not had the time to really sample it. It is a seacell/silk fingering weight yarn and I think I am going to try this pattern with it. The yarn may prove to be too lightweight for this pattern, but I should be able to tell pretty quickly and if so, I will go to the merino/bamboo blend I have, because I LOVE this pattern. So very Victorian.
The Tranquilo yarn is going to becomes this shawl. It's been a while since I started a new shawl, but when I saw this one.........it was love at first sight. Tonight over a cup of hot tea, I will take a good look at both patterns. The Internet is such a wonderful thing, isn't it? Having access to such incredible talent with the click of a button.......wonderful indeed!
