Slippin' Stripin' Socks.
I love this sock and this pattern - this is laceweight yarn - could you tell? However, for some reason I am knitting v-e-r-y slowly. I started this on Friday didn't finish until last night. I am not sure my chances are very good in this third round. Only 12 out of 20 move on. Well, I'll keep plugging away.
Isn't this pretty? This is malabrigo Silky Merino. I have enough for a good-sized project. Any ideas?
We're having birthday cake today for DH and nephew, they share a birthday, so I must get a movin' to have things ready.
The Malabrigo is too yummy. I'd probably just keep it to look at (and feel).
Have a good time choosing!
Over the weekend I saw that koigu now has a merino/silk blend, too. Those jerks. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Many thanks for the compliment: re, coloring. Very sweet sentiment indeed. I usually refer to my tone as "underbelly of a dead fish" - perhaps I should stop being so harsh.
On Saturday I met Ellen (TC blogger) who was looking forward to meeting you sometime soon-- unfortunately I do not remember the name of her blog.
I vote for a reversable scarf or wrist warmers (voodoo pattern from Knitty, perhaps?)
Confession: Ralston is my fave player. He was great last night! Got my #12 t-shirt on today to celebrate!
