And, a couple months ago, I made a pair of baby socks and was asked to share the pattern. Well I finished the socks and gave them away, and never wrote down the pattern. I have since joined a couple groups that knit for babies in the Children's Hospitals so I will be knitting more baby socks and have a pair in the works. I will remember to write out a pattern this time. These are knit with some left over Opal, I think one from the Element group. I will be making some in a sport wt yarn soon. Those little socks are so fast to knit and so darn cute.
And the last pair, Opal Fish. I bought this yarn a couple years ago, and could never decide what pattern to use. I think that is the case with the self striping yarns, I never know what to do with them other than knit them plain, and let the yarn do all the work. I am doing a simple 3 X 1 rib on these with my generic sock pattern. I love the colors in this yarn, it is one of my favorite Opals.
Well the kids are coming in the door from school and will be wanting some attention, more knitterly goodness later.
