In all of my knitting years, I've never had the experience I did with these socks. I picked an all-over lace pattern from my Harmony Guide and even though I knew the gauge was right, it just didn't look right. I felt unsettled all the time I was knitting. I mean, look at this. It's ugly. With socks, you finish one - then you get to do it again. And ugly twice, is one too many.
But it did work and now I'm hot to try it again. I have literally pounds of this sock yarn. I am anticipating the fun of two projects - dyeing and knitting. Does anyone else have an entire drawer of their dresser dedicated to socks - besides me??
Two days and counting before the dye day in Grass Valley with the Foothill Fiber Guild - with the one and only Sara Lamb. I'm pretty much stopped on dyeing until after that, because I've used up my dyes and I'm waiting until after this session before I order more. Than lookout. I have so many things that are just waiting for me to buy dye. Weekends are too short - work weeks are too long~
