Monday is not Sunday but it will do just fine
Done at last and straight in to action. Socks make great little summer projects but as the weather starts to cool down they really come in to their own. There's nothing quite so satisfying in knitting for me as finishing up and pulling the item in question straight on for some much desired warmth.
Yarn: Socks that Rock in the wonderful Thraven
Needles: 2.25mm DPNs
Started: June 9th 2010
Finished: October 18th 2010
These are a wonderful match of a pattern I love (top down - yay!) and a yarn I'd dreamt about owning until the start of this year. Thank you again Wendy for your generosity and thoughtfulness it makes these beauties all the more beautiful to me. I may never take them off though I love how they look when I do. The sculptural aspects of the ribs are wonderful.
And the colour - oh the gorgeous colour - it's a little more true to life in this last shot. I doubt I'll ever have the photography skills to quite capture the amazing depth and variation of these nearly black Raven clan colourways. They are an amazing expression of a real art form.
I'm so lucky in this socky month to jump straight from the yarn of one master dyer to another. Here's the first glimpse of the WM sock - a rather beautiful folded cuff if I do say so myself. Alice has designed a fabulous pattern for variegated colourways so I decided to behave myself as a club member and knit the pattern with the yarn it was designed for. More to see of this at the weekend I feel sure.
