Socks to be me
i have however been a very good knitter :) I finished a pair of stealth socks (which were stealth-swiped and so a photo may be a while coming). One was the black with rainbow trim i posted before and the other was black with some green self-striping german sock yarn trim.. as they are designed for the colour to be hidden i figured they didnt need to match - does wonders for Second Sock Syndrome.
As for my books.. well. Knitting does indeed RULE. great book, i love you stephanie!! Knitting without tears is great too, though i havent been able to read it cover to cover yet (stupid Uni getting in the way of life). And.. Vintage Socks. OMG! love. it. to. death. finally i have some patterns worthy of my lorna's laces :) the start of the sock i showed you in the last post ended up being frogged as my guage was off, but the yarn is SO divine i didnt mind starting again on smaller dpns at all. no, really. yes, me. I KNOW! unbelievable!Anyway, for all of you playing at home, this is the Fancy Silk Sock from Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd sock yarn in Valentine, no modifications. i got guage on 2.25 dpns where the pattern calls for 2.5s.
I dont know if i can guarantee there will be a pair of these though ;) and i may need a new pair of shoes... mary-janes with a little dirty-dancing heel i think... mmm.
anyway, i have other things to show you all but might save them for tomorrow. i need to cast on the second sock asap or i might have second thoughts >.<
