So. I’m thinking about entering this sock contest. The only catch… I have just a few weeks to get my design in order. A friend and I went to Natural Stitches and I bought some of my favorite sock yarn ever, Pagewood Farms “Denali” which is 80% merino superwash, 20% nylon. This yarn is 450 yards of dreamy. It’s springy, squishy and really really soft, and hey, I just realized the colorways match my blog banner.
I plan to do colorwork socks with the orange spice and teal. Not orange spice and navy. I mean, rah rah and go Illini and all that, but ummm, no. I plan to use the navy for some socks for DH.
So. For my birthday last year Lisa and Beth gave me some lovely Lorna’s Laces shepherd sock yarn in the colorway “Parry Hotter”. Come on, we all know it’s really Harry Potter, no foolin’ me. Anyway, the trick is to find a pattern that compliments the gold and maroon stripes in this yarn. So I played around a bit and decided the best thing was not to do any pattern. Just plain stockinette stitch in the round. This is a good project to bring to my Wednesday night knitting group.
Look, I haz a toe!
Should I practice my accordion today or knit?
