Pattern: Solid Socks Mystery Feb/Mar 2011 by Lisa Stichweh Yarn: Sundara Yarn Sock Yarn Color: Ember Over Flame* Needles: US 1 - 2.25 mm Started: May 15, 2011 Completed: June 16, 2011 Note: *See my post a couple FO's ago about the sock yarn color being called russet; in my mind this color is russet. I reduced the cuff by one repeat because the Sundara sock yarn is not a generous skein and I wanted to make sure I had enough to finish these. A very futzy pattern, but I really enjoy the finished product!
I know today is supposed to be WIP day, but maybe next Wednesday! Weather here has not been conducive to good photography.

If you've read the Vogue article about Madelinetosh that just came out - she talks about this color. You can see the color layering in these pictures, and I am lovin' it! I also tried making my gusset reductions (a la The Turtlegirl
!) at the bottom of the foot instead of the top. I am liking the result very much.
This is my last skein of Sundara yarn. I just popped over there to see what she has been up to and the temptation to join the Sundara Yarn Collection
is almost painful. Wander around over there and look at some of her colors. Spanish Tile and Buttercream are just mouthwatering. I'm not going to subscribe to the monthly, but I may just purchase a single skein of a little something....even though I am trying to knit down the stash!
PS. These socks are nearly done - I only ripped it out completely one time!
PPS. School is out and Puck's Freshman/Sophomore lacrosse team took the state Championship again this year!
