I finished a pair of socks last week. Usually I take the photos outside on my deck but for a switch I took these photos in the bedroom.
The yarn is Yarntini in the color Fig and Plum. This stuff is awesome. It has a beautiful sheen. I know the label says merino but I swear there is silk in there.
Here’s that picot edge we all love so much. If you need to know how to do this for yourself go visit Claudia, she’s got a great tutorial. While you are there, donate some money for her MS ride, won’t you?
Even though I can now knit toe up (I’m almost done with that first sock) I think I’ll always love top down with a slip stitch heel flap the best. I can practically knit these in my sleep, you know.
It’s just about too warm for wool socks now which means this pair will go in the sock drawer until the cold weather arrives. New socks are about the only thing worth looking forward to when it comes to the return of the cold.
It’s glorious now, though, so let’s enjoy it while it lasts!
