The Honeycomb Socks are done.
Notice the difference between the two?
Yeah, different striping patterns. You gotta love those handpainted yarns! The two skeins I used for these socks (Claudia Handpainted in the “Pink Cloud” colorway) were purchased at the same time, from the same dyelot, and looked identical in the skein. Weird, huh?
So, anyway, I started another sock, using this:
This gorgeous stuff is from Alyson — The YoYo String and Fluff fingering weight sock yarn. Alyson dyes the most incredible semi-solids. This colorway is called “Masking Envy” and it is a lovely teal, with a lot of depth to it that my photo can’t capture. You’ll have to trust me on this.
(Psst! You can buy this yarn from The Loopy Ewe!
Speaking of gorgeous yarn . . .
This is from Numma Numma, and it is fingering weight sock yarn in her new base “The Usual.” (Don’t remember the name of the colorway . . . ) I was whining to Allen at the Spring Fling about how I missed buying any of her new yarn in the last Loopy Ewe shop update and she very kindly gave me the skein she had brought to the Fling to practice on in class. Soon, my pretty, I shall be knitting you . . .
And even more gorgeous yarn . . .
This is fingering weight sock yarn from Enchanted Knoll Farm in the “Athelas” colorway, given to me by the amazing Josette at the Spring Fling. Isn’t it just lovely? Another one to add to the queue of “must knit up soon” yarns. This yarn is also available at [the Loopy Ewe].
I will pause now so that you may wipe the drool off your monitors . . .
Ew — Errata
Sadly, we’ve identified a few errors in Socks From the Toe Up — two very minor ones, and one in a chart. I’ve created an errata page, which is available from the “Free Patterns” tab, as well as being linked over in the left sidebar. Sorry about the boo-boos, guys!
