Earlier this fall I was contacted by Patti Waters who wanted to know if I would be interested in collaborating with her on a pattern. Having seen Patti's work, I was in!
Patti sent me a picture of an idea that she was working on and asked to do up the sample in Pearl. I was thrilled as Pearl really is my favorite sock yarn so far of the blends that I have. This gave me a good excuse to knit another pair of socks using it.
Patti was kind enough to send me her pair of socks to bring to The Gathering as a sample. I was just too darn busy at the time to knit a sample of my own up. Hannah was gracious enough as well to sit on the wet bail of straw for pictures..haha!
Yesterday I finally had the time to sit down and get started on my Rosalyn sock and I am really enjoying the knit. It has enough cabling to keep it interesting, but not so much that you start to feel like you might want to poke your eye out with the cable needle.
I have been dabbling again not using the cable needle, but I keep dropping stitches, so I think this time I will just use the cable needle.
If you get a chance click on Patti's link and look at her work....she is a very talented young woman. :-)
