is now this
I just was not feeling this sock. It might just be the time of year, with wanting colors that remind me of spring rather than winter. In truth, I started this sock because it was there as I had finished Koi Pond socks and had no socks on the needles. (I was going to make an analogy to a bar at closing time here, but I have thought better of it….)
In any case, where one has departed this world, two more have sprung up. The first is one that I have been itching to do for a while now.
The pattern in these socks is a slip stitch pattern that I found in Stitchionary 3. I have had to alter the pattern so that it works over 16 stitches rather than 12, but that is basically the only change that I have made.
And if you’ll notice, it is cuff down. I am doing it this way because I am using two balls of yarn for each sock, so I suspect that I should have plenty (though the slip stitch pattern is eating yarn like crazy.) The yarn is Claudia’s Handpaints in Navy Olive and Honey.
And the other socks?
Well, I am back to using Jitterbug again, even though it is so short on yardage. Basically, I could not resist this colorway. It is called Parrot. I was drawn to this shade of blue.
And that which you see with the sock is something that Lynn from Meetup gave to me a while ago but I have failed to post. It is called SoulCollage. She says it is kind of like tarot, and this image kept coming to her, so she made it and gave it to me. How great!
I will get into detail about my weaving and spinning experiment in another post, but for now?
And Stacey, I am still swooning!
