Swapsies

I decided to swap my attention from my second Knit Love sock club sock which just will not knit itself to the latest installment. A pattern much more in my comfort zone, cuff down, aaahhh that's more like it for relaxing with. It seemed in keeping with the ethos of ignoring deadlines and having just signed up for the Polka Dot Jersey again for the Tour de France KAL it's important to have some WIP mountains ready to climb.I made another swap. Having decided that the club yarn (which is the beautiful purple stuff here) Spirit Trail Fiberworks 'Sunna' would make a delicious scarf or shawl there was a stashed yarn clamouring to be used for this elegant lace. My magic yarn from my magic swap. I've also decided on no beads as beaded socks do not rock my world and with those gone these should be the perfect travel knit for Berlin.

Lovely yarn! I look forward to seeing your finished pair of socks. You know, I haven't plucked up the courage the knit my first pair of socks yet. So tempted to book myself on one of the Knit Nation classes.
