Ice Cream... mmm...


Yes, I know... start-i-tis. Here I was thinking last week. Wow... it's really nice to have one project going... it really moves along... Bang head. I knew it couldn't last.

I've been dying to try Panda Cotton. I ordered some for Hub from The Loopy Ewe, but this is the summer of socks for ME. So, I ordered again... for me. I'd been debating the same 2-3 colors forever. Then somehow, I came out with this one. Not one of the ones debated. It's Vanilla Cream. I don't even wear these colors really. But the name enticed me. I also had recently purchased the Summer Fun sock pattern from Anne at Knitspot. I was thinking of neopolitan swirl ice cream socks for the girls. How irresistible will that be?! But little did I know that this yarn would work perfectly for this sock. It must have been fate. ;) How yummy would the chocolate almond Panda Cotton be in this pattern? I think I'm salivating. I love me some ice cream.

So far... I'm getting in touch with my inner purl-er. Lots of purling in this one. Since I knit a lot in the round I'm not used to it. but it is a nice change. And good practice. And this "lace" thing... what's a little yarnover here and there. Not scary at all. I suppose the Roza's were technically lace too.

Thank you for your suggestions for my heel/fat ankle issue. I am going to look into the options suggested and see what works out. I'll keep you posted.

Lest you think I've developed SSS, not to worry. I've worked several inches of the second Undulating Ribs.

I hadn't noticed in the photos that that sock pattern was mostly purled. That would change my gauge a bit.

Should be a very pretty combo of yarn and pattern when finished.

If you're not so into the purling, you could work on the sock inside out, thereby making all the purls knits.

That color is delicious!

Awe those are so cute! I'm wrestling with my panda cotton at the moment. It's so dang splitty! I think you made a better pattern decision too. I wasn't so smart.
