Under the Socktoberfest Wire
The knitting around here may be all about colors these days, but the blogging still has two pairs of socks to catch up on. There's a secret pair of socks for that Christmas basket. . . And then there's a pair for me. I really intended these to be a gift, but the two skeins of handpainted yarns were dramatically different in value. It doesn't show up that well in these photos, but it's on par with what Colleen recently experienced. So now they're mine. Too bad . . .
Little Arrowhead Lace Socks Pattern: free Nancy Bush pattern available here!
Yarn: Artyarns Supermerino, took >2 skeins even for my tiny feet (US 6.5)
Needles: Brittany Birch US 3 dpns
Notes: Hated the yarn color difference. Otherwise, no modifications. Love this pattern. Have made it before, will make it again.
Best Thing About This Project: Socktoberfest fun - now I'm at pair #119 in lifetime sock knitting. Not to shabby, eh?
And speaking of the Christmas basket, I spent some time this weekend finalizing my Christmas list and wrapping all the Christmas presents I already have. My husband thinks I'm nuts. I think I'm prepared. What do you think?
