What could be better for the first 100+ degree day of the year? Nothing better. Socks for me! Yippeee!
I started this pair...
This is the Undulating Ribs pattern from Favorite Socks. I was fully prepared for the yarn to overwhelm the pattern. And in such a case I planned to stop the undulating ribs after the fourth twist. Thus giving a cuff and 3 sections of rib. I saw this version and thought if that yarn could pull it off, mine might. Looking at it now with one twist to go... I think it's too busy to keep the pattern up. So they'll just be 'Undulating Cuffs'. Here's a second pic with it stretched a bit so you can see the pattern better.
Do you recognize the yarn? It's Fruit Snacks! My first yarn dying experience. I had no idea how it would knit up and the suspense jumped this yarn to the top of the heap!
Now, I need some help people. I have this gorgeous ball of yarn from Illusion Yarns. (She's one of the sponsors for the SOS KAL.) It's her Lotus colorway. I love it. It's a really unusual combo of colors. But I have NO IDEA what to make with it! I've looked around and I just can't pick a pattern. But I can't seem to "settle" for plain jane either. Any ideas? I'm thinking I can do something between 60-64 stitches with it for my foot.
I hope this hot summer day has found you some sock knitting fun!
