Last night I finished the second of the Ida’s Delusions of Grandeur socks.
To recap, these are knit from Dream in Color Smooshy sock yarn in the Pansy Golightly colorway, on 2mm needles. The pattern will be available for sale at The Loopy Ewe, probably in a couple of weeks.
I will be sending Sheri three new patterns soon — this one, the Einkorn socks, and the Ribbon Candy sportweight socks. I’ve been remiss lately in finalizing sock patterns so I’ll make an effort to get these three to her by the end of the month.
A completed sock project means only one thing chez WendyKnits: a new sock project!
As promised, I started knitting with one of my new skeins of Cherry Tree Hill Select Supersock, in the Java colorway. Oh my, is this yarn ever yummy! It is softer than the regular Supersock, but still has the tight twist I love so much in sock yarns. and the colorway is simply wonderful!
Speaking of wonderful, I managed to snag some Wollmeise from The Loopy Ewe this week.
Why did I want these two colorways particularly? Look at the labels:
My uncle’s name is Frantz and my grandfather’s name was Emil. 🙂
Speaking of wonderful, look at the surprise that was waiting for me when I got home today:
This is a giant gourmet fortune cookie, sent to me by the totally awesome Dani. Thank you, Dani! I can’t wait to dig in!!
