I am definately sock obsessed. Straight on the tails of the Jaywalkers are my newest sock using Trekking 107. It is really soft, but hard to tell what this is going to look like knitted up. The ball looks like shades of pink and green with some blue. It is really interesting to see what color comes next. The pattern is from Jeanie Townsend, which I got from a Yahoo sock KAL group.
We are off to Portugal tomorrow, extremely early I should add. Our flight is at 7:20 out of Gatwick. I think I am getting up at 3:30 or something horrible like that. The only good thing is that we should arrive at our destination by noon, which is nice. I can't decide what other projects to bring along. One thought is a curly whirly out of Blue Skys Alpacas Alpaca and Silk with a Tilli Tomas border. I think these look great together.
Here is another finished product. This was a quick, one skein hat with a yarn that we are thinking of for the shop. As you can see, my daughter loved it. She would not take it off despite it being August.
I love how it self stripes. It is feltable as well, and is a chunky weight so it knits up quickly. Nice for the coming winter.
Well I'm off. Happy Holiday!
