I had not intended to do socks again. Well, at least not a pair
of "have to think" socks. Maybe a brainless pair.
I did a lot of swatching this week. I was determined to teach
myself two-color brioche. And I did. But not without lots
of mistakes. Brioche is sooo cool. Amazing. But two color
is a little tricky. The whole goal was to make a scarf to use
of the yarn from the Endpaper mitts. I did not like any of
the combinations. I even attempted a chevron pattern.
No go. Soooooo am now making a one-color brioche
scarf that is totally brainless....All of that swatching and training
makes for very dull blog posting....LOL
I cast on 72 stitches for socks, and looked around for
a pattern. Found the Rivercat Pattern - free on Knitty.
It has a lot of purling, and not sure if I like how the purls
look, but I think they will flatten out a little once I block
Yarn is Fiber Optics - same as last pair. I'm determined to
use Rhinebeck yarn as much as possible. Just starting
the heel flap. Leg is 7" long. I don't like how she did
the heel flap so I'm doing the one I usually do.
So far, so good.
Ruth is working on yet another pair of cute little
socks for her granddaughter.. CUTE !!!!
Cascade fixation yarn.
Martha is working on a pair of socks using Lornas Laces yarn.
Pattern is Purl Lace Socks from Socks Socks Socks book.
She has a lot of purling in hers also.
I like how the pattern works with the yarn. So pretty!
Today is Easter and we got to see our new little
niece Faith. She is such a doll. All of the excitement
wore her out. She is 2.5 months old already.
