Doing the Monday Dance

Ah ha! Another project DONE. I feel my focus coming back. These are simple socks made in Lorna's Lace's (Purl's custom colors - brick and cream). I love the yarn, love the color, the stripes are psychotic. The pattern was based on the guidelines from Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I made them shorter on the leg, and they are quite comfortable and cute, despite the wack striping. I think the stripes would look better with a lower cast on number, so maybe I'll try a Nano sock or something, along the lines of what my pal has made here.

I have not cast on anything new! Just been swatching for Green Gable, and trying to finish up these old projects. Ok so I am really avoiding starting over the Padded Footlet, but since I have finished 2 projects in less than a week, my confidence is coming back. I will do my best to finish up that (damn) footlet this week, and hopefully plant my terrace garden AND start a new project by next weekend. Woo hoo hooey!

Argh! I have that same sock yarn, and the stripes make me nuts too! I've started over with it about 4 times, I can never figure out how to make the stripes look right.
But your socks actually look very cool in the picture, much better than any of my false starts.

Socks look great! I like how they striped, kind of different than what you usually see.

the socks work!! as a finished pair it all makes sense and falls into place. It inspires me to try the LLS I have!

The socks look great!
Your American mix beeing mostly Finnish might explain why you have the vocabulary of a sailor (as you told me earlier) ;-)

i think those socks look great! is that what the kids are saying now, "wack" meaning excellent? (like how "who's bad? means who's good and tough??!)
