First Socks in Nearly a Year!

Posted by Picasa

I realized recently that I haven't made any socks since March 2006! Nothing I tried worked. So I took a pattern I really liked, Colour Joy Socks from Red Bird Knits, and made it again using Socks That Rock yarn (Dutch Canyon colorway). This is a slip-stitch pattern that gives some extra interest to yarns with short space-dyed lengths.

This picture is taken on top of the cozy blanket I got for Xmas - I call it my Flat Stuffed Animal. It's great for napping, and also appears to work nicely for photographing darker colored objects (although the colors in this photo do seem a little darker than they really are).

Actually those seem to be very nice colors!
