I'm sitting here waiting for the snow to commence... we are suppose to get a couple of inches but so far I've only seen a flake or two. Hey if they are wrong it won't make me unhappy. I don't like driving it it and I'm too old to go sledding, so no snow would be fine.
Now I have been knitting and I have 2 pairs of socks finished... both of these pairs use the same recipe of alternating 2 patterning yarns every row. I LOVE how you have no idea what you are going to get. LOL...this is as dangerous as I get in life... the excitement of unexpected yarn patterning...oh I'm such a thrill seeker! Woo - hoo!
All the yarns used in these pairs comes from Nordic Mart... you can check them out here. Great yarns, great prices. The first pair used Drops Fabel 340 (turquoise) and Pix 108 Techno by Universal and the heels are Drops Fabel 109 (cerise).
This pair used Drops Fabel 330 (purple) and Pix 106 Succulent by Universal and the heels are Drops Fabel 112 (apple green).
I have plenty of of the Pix yarns left over and I plan on knitting them with a different solid/tonal yarn and they will look completely different. I really enjoy knitting just plain stockinette socks... mindless ...soothing...meditative... and totally doable when you are talking or watching TV. I was always a big fan of self-patterning yarns and knitting with 2 at a time has opened up a whole new world of possibilities. No two socks will ever be alike... I LOVE that!
So I'm off to paw through my stash and see what other combinations I can come up with.
happy knitting... stay warm!
