Firstly, thank you all for your comments on the last few posts! I thought all my readers had left me!
So, I just wanted to interupt the barrage of FO's to show you a WIP.
I am not sure how I feel about knitting with black yarn...I think this is a first for me...well besides a tweed.
I feel blind.
When I finally get to knit at night, I have to literally sit under a lightbulb to knit this. I do like the yarn though. It is meilenwiet cotton from lana grossa. It is machine washable...which is a defintely plus for the recipient and who wouldn't love black socks! How practical.
The pattern I found on Ravelry. Mad colour weave socks.
I really like the pattern...it is interesting and knits up fairly quickly. I have already cast on for the second sock.
I wanted to make them a little longer than written, but wasn't sure if I would have enough yarn. I ended up doing a 7th repeat of the pattern before starting the heel. Also I knit up the 74 st size but ended up decrease down to the next smaller size. The recipient likes a looser leg, so it worked out.
Well, there is it.
A sock is on the needles...
and I am officially knitting for Christmas!
