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!

carol fun


  1. Great socks once again. It will be interesting to see how the second sock's mate looks.

  2. Love the sock...and the yarn looks so yummy!

    Wishing you a super great weekend. :)

  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.

  4. Fun yarns! I love the cuff of your first sock.

  5. It must be fun trying to imagine how those lovely colors will turn out!!

  6. Your socks are such a pretty color. Am anxious to see the two together.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
