My current work in progress:

1. "T-Rex," designed by Rebecca Danger, knit from Blue moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock in the "Lucky" colorway on U.S. size 3 needles.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

A Simple Sock

Okay, a bunch of you Smartypants immediately identified the yarn I’m using for my simple sock as Wollmeise in the Johannisbeer und Brennessel colorway. Clearly you all are experts in Wollmeise colorway identification.

A quick trip through the Google translator tells me that the colorway name translates into “currant and nettle” in English. Very appropriate, no?

So, Thursday night I was thinking that I needed a simple project to take to Virginia Beach with me for the weekend. “This is a job for Wollmeise!” thought I. I ventured into the stash room and looked through the Wollmeise I have, and decided on this lovely colorway.

I did do a bit of knitting over the weekend, and today I am past the heel on the first sock.

And here is a close-up of the slipstitch heel, just because a slipstitch heel in Wollmeise makes me happy.

The pattern is a simple knit/purl thing, and the results kind of make me think of bamboo.

So I am calling this sock “Bamboozled.” Just try and stop me.

I’ve got another new work-in-progress . . .
