third time's a charm ....
this is my third attempt at knitting these socks. my first attempt was with koigu. the koigu was ripped and became this instead. then i tried some hand jive nature's palette. but, the twist was very much like koigu and kinda obliterated the delicate leaves. now i am using froehlich wolle silky baby-lambs. i think i'm on the right track.
ps. if you click on the link for this yarn, you're taken to the web pages of a site no longer maintained. the yarnshop is now under new ownership and has a new webpage under raveknits. i think the older website is more comprehensive, and they do have TONS of needles and hooks. it just happens to be about a mile off of I-85 in concord, nc, ... which i pass anytime i go home to visit my family.
as the holiday season creeps in, which i do love ... i am feeling some pre-holiday stress with my list of what to make. i seem to spend more time worrying about the list vs. just casting on or sewing!
