Off and On the Needles

There was a bit of knitting in my week and I was able to finish the Lorna's Laces In the Wind sock I showed last Friday. Ta dah!


Now this yarn has serious problems in that I can tell now that the second sock is going to look very similar to the first one.... oh the thrill is gone - LOL! Anyway I'll get back to the mate for this one in a week or two or three or whenever.

So my needles were momentarily empty and I grabbed this ball of yarn.



This is another Opal Antonia Hand dyed and is colorway 3175. I purchased it from Simply Socks here. And I LOVE the way this is knitting up! First we have the right facing profile...


and the left facing profile...and yes I do see those stitches I messed up - must fix them!


This has a lovely orange sherbet swath along with three shades of purple. It is turning out more swirly stripe-y than pooling but I'm okay with that. The Antonia yarns are so interesting. I have no idea how this sock or its mate is going to knit up and that keeps my needles clicking row after row.

Well I'm hoping to have a cozy weekend at home knitting, stitching and sewing. Hope yours is cozy too!

  3. I love the first sock! I looked for that yarn after your last post but couldn't find it! I am envious. I like the "ribbing" on that sock as well. I don't think I have seen it like that before. I'm guessing it's K1P1 and then P1K1?

    Your new sock is BRIGHT! and fun looking. I hope the spiral continues.
