There should be some gartered lace in between stockinette lace work. It shouldn’t take long to re-knit/fix the shawlette…mindless knit for another busy Friday (4H Cooking, 4H Sewing, DMV…)
Need to wet-blocking the yarn first…to avoid undesirable gauge discrepancy with rest of the shaw
Today, I decided to play with next shop sample on my plate. Everyone has that one skein of yarn in their stash that refuses to behave. Look no more…
Potomac is a beauty. Another beautiful hand-painted variegated yarn by Blue Moon Sock That Rocks Medium Weight
perfect for Pinata Socks.
The stripes are very pronounced on the side-to-side cuffs.
It’s a little hard to tell with how bright those lovely colors are. The wide ribs, with all-purl rows in the body of the socks, jumbled up the colors and put that undesirable pooling and flashing yarn in its proper place.
I loved watching these socks being born and am honored that Shannon and Emily asked me to knit up a sample. They fit well so far and will provide smiles when someone does wear them instead of leaving on a mannequin.
This gives me another opportunity to accomplish more than just a new pair of socks…I got to play with a wonderful yarn.
In addition to crazy amounts of studying, I’ve also been doodling. It’s nice and relaxing, a good way for my brain to rest.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
