the pretty handpainted socks are finished

basic and beautiful


sometimes, you get a yarn that's just all so pretty, and you kill yourself trying to find the "perfect" pattern for it. sometimes, all that yarn needs is stockinette to show it off.

i had purchased this yarn at the nc fiberfest back in may (?). this pair of socks became my "mindless" knitting ... a pair to knit on when all other projects required too much of my attention.

and now that they're completed, i'm going to have to go stash diving for another yarn too pretty to be anything else other than stockinette ......

the same day i finished these, i also finished the first of my 3rd pair of papaver soks ...


papaver


the yarn was also purchased at the fiberfest. this yarn is The Unique Sheep Tinsel Toes , in colorway Prince of the Wood Elves. it's a merino/tencel blend.

i love the sheen of the tencel. now, i just need to cast on sock #2!
