So along with all the fiber that came into the house this week there was a little knitting too. The number 1 project is still the BIG BLACK socks for my son.
I need to borrow his size 13 feet for a minute to determine if I can start the toe. Hopefully they will be around some time tomorrow.
So even though that sock didn't get finished I did finish a sock for me. These are my EasyGoing Alice socks. The color in the second pic is truer - the yarn is a creamy white with bits of black, blue, pink and yellow.
The pattern is EasyGoing - you can see it here on Ravelry. It is a free pattern. I love the cable down the side and the way she wrote the pattern. Instead of this cable being at the ends of your needles as you knit down the leg, she positions the cable in the center of the needles and then you shift the pattern when you start the heel turn. Very clever and no problems with dropped stitches at the beginning or end of a round.
The yarn is from Three Irish Girls. It is the Cashmerino Fingering and has 10% cashmere and it feel soooooooo good!! I think I got this from Loopy Ewe but I don't see this color there now. However there are a couple other colors that are calling my name like Strawberry Fields Forever and Mairin.
I LOVE sock yarn and last night I came across this new online magazine - The Sock Report - check it out here. You can buy the patterns individually for $6.50 or all of the patterns for $16. Since there are at least 3 patterns I love I'll be buying the whole package.
Well here's hoping that you have a lovely weekend. I'm planning to stay home and sew and knit and cross stitch. There wasn't enough of those activities in my week so far.
