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!
