I can't believe I'm actually making this post so early on a Sunday - hey this is early for me - LOL! Again this week I'm not certain of the name of this sampler but I'm pretty sure it was a Ewe & Eye & Friends piece.
I am sure that I love this quote. It is by Oliver Wendell Holmes, a Supreme Court justice, an interesting fun fact supplied by my son, the lawyer. I stitched on a lovely rose colored linen.
I'm particularly fond of this little dog. Isn't he cute? And here are the socks I finished on Wednesday.
These are knitted with Opal sock yarn, from the Hundertwasser collection. This one is called Use Public Transportation - Save the City. The Hundertwasser is a line of sock yarn is inspired by the works of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, an Austrian painter and sculptor who embraced bold colors and I do love the colors.
I love how Opal makes yarn that knits up looking like you did a lot of stranded color work but all you did was knit knit knit. And I like how you get stripes of different widths too. I think Opal is my favorite sock yarn for plain stockinette socks. I knit the first sock and then I take the remaining yarn and wind it into a ball so the stripes are in the opposite rotation from the first sock so they are similar but different and they don't match - I love that!
Well off to lunch - hope you have a great week with lots of stitching time. Oh and enjoy the Super Bowl - I love the commercials and the music acts.
