The ripping streak I posted about last time continued to haunt me. Sigh. I ripped the same sock AGAIN because it was far, far too big. You would thing I would notice that before reaching the toe, but sadly, no. I gave up on all fancy patterns for it and just went for plain old ribbing. I knew it would fit, and it always looks good. Finally, success!
All done except the toe grafting. I could have knit at least 1 other pair of socks in the time I took screwing around with these. I am glad they are done, and that I like them. they are going into the Christmas pile and that makes me happy too!
We visited my brother and his lovely bride-to-be in Barrie a couple of weeks ago, and Annie was lovely enough to put up with taking me to Knit and Quilt, Barrie’s LYS. I was happy to find yarns I had never even heard of (yes, apparently such a thing exists) and this little number followed me home.
It is Punta Yarns Merisoft Handpaint, in the luscious colour HP71. So soft. So squishy. You so need some. With it I made this:
John Brinegar’s Bouce. Aptly named if you make it in some sort of squishy yummy yarn like this one. Quick and easy too, two of my favourite attributes in a pattern.
Coming up next? Well I’ve been into the dyes again, and it seems there is a small monster in my head just awaiting his birth. We’ll see how much ripping THAT requires!
