oh you sock knitters; you convinced me.
(sorry scarf knitters, i just didn’t get to do photos today; we’ll have to release campanula in a couple of days. i promise, those photos are the very next on my list).
but here’s one of them anyway . . . for me this sock just sparkles with the feeling of being waterside—the abundant light, the sounds, the stones and shells, and the shapes of the lapping ocean—i love them all. and then there are the memories of camp, sigh.
a fun, fun pattern to knit that looks WAY more complex than it is; it’s a great summer sock project. just ask gail—she’s making two pair already!
this completes my latest episode of “love letter to tina“, being the third sock in a row i’ve knit in her fun and fabulous socks that rock® yarn. but i promise, it won’t be my last; i’m not “taking a break” or anything like that. thank you tina for a wonderful week at camp; it was my first and i hope it won’t be the last.
once again agnes rocked the test knit for this sock; she works so fast it makes my head spin—thank you agnes, you are super-duper!
not to be outdone, gail joined in and knit two different sizes for her test pairs—how lucky are we? gail, i HEART you!
my fabulous friend kim pulled out all the stops to work the socks for a splendid at the tidepools in la jolla, with an audience of curious tourists (and jocelyn and beckie to heckle her), no less (she can handle it, though).
and though we’re not in california any more (pout), i am delighted to treat you to more of those dazzling views and textures found only on the west coast.
