I finished the Zombie Valentine socks April 8...
Contrast yarn: Two Sisters in Red
Needle: Kollage square 9" US 1/2.25mm
Socks started: June 21, 2017 (Vanilla pattern)
Yarn: Fishknits Yarn on the Strong Heart base, color is Canadiana
Needle: Knitpicks 5" DPNs, size US 1, 2.25 mm (wood needles)
Socks started: June 21, 2017 - the cuff was actually started before this, but I just put down that date as starting point
I followed Susan B. Anderson's directions for this yarn and pattern.
Did I mention my obsession with self stripe yarn? This is just a small sampling. I actually have a tub mostly filled with it..
|This arrived today, waiting on another|
The other one I've been working on is the Games socks (Vanilla Latte pattern)
No love was given to my Just Keep Swimming socks...I am on the heel, and I still want to do the Fish Lips, but haven't taken the time to sit down and figure it out yet....I will..it's on the list
I am looking to work on some patterns that showcase the stripey more that the Vanilla Latte or a ribbed sock. Although ribbed socks fit me the best....and I maybe should work on some of my non self stripe yarn and patterns.....
On the way home today, I was like, "Maybe I can whip up a pair of shorty socks for May 4" (You know May the Fourth Be With You Day).....Yeah, I realized that wasn't going to happen....I had the yarn (I do have other SW inspired yarn)
Sorry, geeked out there for a minute.....
So if you'd like to join us, Paula at Spin A Yarn has the link-up....please join us...
