These were started yesterday for car knitting, I have found that I cannot knit the lace for the hedera look-alikes in the car, it requires too much attention and I make myself carsick. Yesterday was supposed to be our weekly trip to
( btw, is it just me or do all socks, when started toe up two at once always look kinda like a strange, colourful bra when photographed?)
this is the yarn I'm using:
I found it in my stash, one ball had already been re-wound into a center pull, and this one had no label, I know it's Regia, but that's about it (the center pull must have been wound from the outside in because the two sock are striping in opposite colour direction. I don't care; I think it makes them look kinda cool).
I bought this, along with the yarn used for the sweater ornament, several years ago when I first started knitting. I wanted to make socks, so I found a generic top down pattern and went at it and made myself a sock, it didn't fit, so I never made its mate (I still have the second ball sitting in my stash waiting for a non-sock use.) and I never made socks again until last winter when I fell in love with toe up and short row heels. And now I'm afraid I have caught the sock bug!
