I am having minor heart attacks watching the Gophs and the Sioux battle it out. Oh hello.
Sock Madness. I lost my round against a very nice young lady who lives in Germany. I just had too much going on this weekend to devote all my hours to finishing this pair of socks. However, I present my Mad-tini socks, knit on 2.75 mm rosewood needles (eh, I'll take my Knitpicks dpns I think). The yarn is Spritely Goods Sylph Fairy Duster II (www.spritelygoods.com). I have enough yarn left over for a second pair of socks! You can see my competitors' work over here at this Flickr website.
A closeup of the cute stitch. The pattern was written using European terminology for a few stitches so that was a little bit of a challenge. Thank goodness for www.knittnighelp.com.
I am free to pick this up again:
This is next - any ideas for patterns?
And - I was a big winner! Over at Chris' blog - Stumbling Over Chaos - I was lucky with my comment entry! Look at all the yummy stuff she sent me!
There chocolate and Pez and some needle holders and some Dicentra yarn - isn't that yummy.
Oh. Gophers lose. Darn.
Love, love, love the new yarns. I'm a perpetual shade of green over here.
Dicentra yarn-- what do you think? Is it Anne Schaefer thin? The solar color (or similar- whatever it's called) always seems to 'talk' to me, you know? :)
I was wondering if you might care to share them with me - just pop over to the shop and click the "contact" link at the bottom and let me know - I'd love to be able to add them to the gallery.
