yeah, i dunno what’s up with my socks this week. i’m just not finding the right expression for them—y’know? i have great yarn and even some good design ideas, but i am a-g-o-n-i-zing over the stitches. here’s where i am with barkingSox
you see the problem? that is NOT progress.
but! i have a plan. i scoured every book, and i found something new that i like.
actually, i love what i found, but it’s too big a pattern for sox. however, i can easily scale it down—it’s not at all tricky.
i love it because it is reminiscent of sycamores for me (you’ll see), and you know what color(s) they are??—yup, browns and bright greens. and they peel. i will show you that tomorrow—i hope it works
i did nothing with those pastel socks last night. i ripped them out and showed my evening class about the toe-up method. and that’s about it for those til the next time i can fit them in.
what i did work on was the new manLace . . . oh my.
it’s lush. it’s taking a lot more yarn than i planned (again), but isn’t that always the way with high-end types? now this piece could present a real conundrum for some guys.
it’s as soft as anything, and they like that.
but it has colors. colors that are not gray, brown, black , or blue.
it. could. be. too girly.
(wink). just sayin.
i’m a knit-tin, knit-tin . . . knittin’ machine
the malabrigo advances at an alarming rate—my coffee table is covered with red knit sweater.
