i almost forgot ... porch, part II

how could i forget i finished my socks?! good grief!

yay! a pair!

i finished these a couple of days ago. most socks that get finished in the summer don't really get worn until the fall or winter. and i'm not sure if i'm going to keep them. i think the foot is slightly too short for me.

all the details in my notebook.

since it is summer of socks, i did cast on for something new. i am a bit doubtful of the gauge, but if it works out, they will be mindless knitting. the pattern is fibertrend's raindrop lace. the yarn is a merino/bamboo/nylon mix, a treat from agent scarlet. it's hard to believe she parted with red yarn. sucker! of course, if i have problems with the pattern, it's because the yarn is cursed.

Very cute! I like the line across the top of the toe - very "old school" looking....

That red yarn is spectacular! Hope it bends to your wishes!

Hmmm...let's see, 'foot is slightly too short for you' and the color is a purdy periwinkle? Surely, there is 'someone' out there who might just welcome these socken's with open footies!!!!
