Thank you for all the lovely comments about this sock. I am liking it very much myself.
I think that the pattern and the yarn do very well together. Here’s the first sock completed:
And of course, the close-up:
The pattern will indeed be available at The Loopy Ewe when I’ve got it finished.
I’m on the second sock now. Teddy, of course, insisted on modeling the toe:
I am loving the Misty Mountain yarn, too. I think it was just dumb luck on my part when I selected it to try this new pattern. The subtle variegations of the yarn colorway really really work with this pattern and I couldn’t be more pleased.
Marianne Y. commented:
I have a question about the yarn. For some reason, it looks to me like it is not nearly as soft as something like Dream in Color or Fiesta Boomerang. Is that a fair statement?
Nope, it’s really not a fair statement. It is definitely a different base yarn from either Dream in Color or Boomerang, but it is very soft and lovely to knit. And it feels wonderful on the foot too.
Lucy and I have been having a quiet weekend with the KOARC. On Thursday I had two, count ‘em two, epidural cortisone injections that really pushed the limits of the ol’ pain threshold for me. The one I had a couple of weeks ago was a comparative piece of cake, so this experience came as a complete surprise. Here’s hoping they do some good.
So we’ve been laying low chez Wendyknits. Just watching movies, working on sock patterns, and the odd trip out for lunch or shopping. I shall venture forth to the office tomorrow. Whee.
“I like quiet weekends!”
