The second pair off the needles this week ... Cables Galore in Opal Uni ( don't know the color # ... sorry ) This pair was a victim of second sock syndrome. I don't even remember when I started them, but it was sometime in 2007. I really like this color of blue. They will look great with jeans.
And while my eyes are recovering from the bright pink of that yarn, I am finishing a pair of Denmark Socks, from Nancy Bush's "Knitting on the Road". I am knitting these in King Cole Merino Blend 100% Superwash Merino. These would be done if it weren't for the fact I knit 4" of the leg with the cables going in the wrong direction. I am blaming it on the eye strain from the pink yarn.
A few months ago I got my copy of the book, and I was even more elated than when they accepted the designs. There is just something so neat about seeing "designed by", with your name behind it. Anyway, the book is available now, so I can show pictures. This is the hat design that was accepted.
And this is the scarf. These are not the photos from the book, they are my own. As you can see the shrubs were in bloom, so it has been a while ago.
And oh my, the yarn the scarf was knit in is yummy. It is Sublime/KFI Cashmere Merino Silk Aran. The hat is knit in Classic Elite Yarns Desert.
OK enough of the shameless plug. I have to take the eldest back to the library again today. I had to take her yesterday to return a dvd and she forgot to put the dvd back in the case .... so we have to go again.
Have a great week all!!!!!!
