Lace and Cables and Koigu, oh my!

July 21st, 2007

Well Sock Pal, I did it again. I changed my mind. I really wasn’t enjoying the Tofutsies. It’s not that your sock wasn’t coming out nice, but it was just ok. So I decided to take advantage of the 40+ new colors of Koigu that Knitting Central got in over the last few weeks. I chose a new color for you, and began your sock once again. The Koigu kept whispering something about cables and lace. What was I to do? Design a new pattern of course! Here it is in all it’s glory:

Koigu is my favorite yarn for socks, and I just want to spread the joy! I’ve just finished the leg, so on to the heel and foot. I’m hoping to finish the first sock this weekend. If I don’t keep getting sidetracked by lace:

This is the Large Rectangle with leaf and trellis from Victorian Lace Today. The end is in site as I’m on the 23rd of 30 repeats for the center of the shawl.

Look at that fabulous silky sheen! I’ve fallen in love with Claudia Hand Painted Silk Lace. I just enjoy knitting it more and more as I go along. Can’t wait to finish the center and begin the border!

I did also manage to finish the first of Child’s First Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks.

Claudia Hand Painted Fingering is my second favorite yarn for socks. I really should begin the second sock to ward off SSS (second sock syndrome)! This one sock is getting kinda lonely…

Ever notice there’s not enough knitting time? Here’s to wishing you all the knitting time you want!

    Yes, I am in love with Koigu myself–your sock looks great! Perfect combo of yarn and pattern.

    The colorway you chose is a perfect match for your pattern. I’m going to have to get my hands on a few skeins of that new Koigu.

    I keep seeing the Large Rectangular, and with each WIP and/or finished project I move it closer and closer to being my next project to cast on.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I’m enjoying your sock pattern Cables,Cables Everywhere with the Knitting Central Sock Club. Love the Koigu sock yarn. SOOOOOOOOO soft. I received a beautiful colorway of pinks, purples and corals. Lucky me.
