The new pattern for SixSox is up this morning. I have already printed it out and been to the yarn shop to purchase yarn to knit it up (see yarn porn above). I will be useing the black Opal and the purple & green (Jungle Stripe) Lorna’s Laces Shephard Sock for the Mosiac Socks.
The orange and green Cascade 220 are to go with some black and purple Cascade 220 I have in my stash, I will be using these to knit up some Halloween, socks for the kiddos, for inspirationSAM over at SocknittersSAM.
I am already on the foot of the first pair of socks for the beginnerSAM. I am useing some leftover Cascade 220 superwash from Basketcase and am knitting up a pair of Lacy Heart Socks from the Hearts & Stripes pattern. I ended up ripping it out twice because the pattern is written for a VERY small foot, something like a childs size 6. I ended up casting on 44sts on size US4 using Cascade 220, perfect for my daughter’s size 1 feet.
Oh, I also bought some Lavender Eucalan, cuz you gotta warsh dem sox.
