……. self-portrait Tuesday …….
Well alrighty now! The game is afoot!
This is my first pair of STR and although I have a little bit in ye olde stash, these socks are the first to make it on the runway…
After reading about this yarn for YEARS now, I am a little behind the curve, but better late than never. Especially since the newer distribution is in bigger hanks [and less likely to fraternal-ize from foot-to-foot as seen above].
I do not mind the difference. I do not mind the Flash. I do not mind ze POOL!
I swim freely!
Of all things knitting, socks make me the very happiest and I would make them all the live long day if I could. This yarn is downright dee-lightful and performed really well in just a simple boot sock pattern.
Ever on the make for stitch patterns that work to bring out the groove in the handpaint could be a life work – what are your favorites? Corinne, my partner in socking on this outing, is making her STR in a cool pattern by Empress Nancy Bush (Heeless Sleeping Socks from “Knitting Vintage Socks”) that works that striping in a very fine way.
