blue lace

magic socks

i'm knitting these socks for the march challenge of ska ... one of the techniques is "lace".

i do have to pay attention to the pattern, somewhat, since every round does have patterning. to keep up, i'm using both my kacha (row counter) and magnet board.

i have bitten off more than i can chew since the new year, so it has been slow knitting on these. but, i really enjoy the pattern! it's called magic mirror by jeannie cartmel.

the yarn is also a favorite ... it's cascade heritage. it's a bit on the thin side, like lorna's laces shepherd sock. it has a nice smoothe twist. and the price is very reasonable.
