Before I get to the knitting... GO GIANTS! (sorry, Nancy. and anyone in Texas)
Okay, so I finished up a pair of socks yesterday. These are Fishbone Gansey socks -- they're a bit higher than what I've made before and it's impossible to see the design in this photo.
This is the actual color of the yarn -- I borrowed this photo from Judy because it didn't seem like something she'd feel too attached to! It's Kypria yarn from Sanguine Gryphon, and the color is "noise and laughter". It's fabulous to knit with -- wool, bamboo and a little nylon, I think, with a tight twist and just a hint of sheen.
This is what the pattern on the leg looks like. The rest of the sock is a 3/1 ribbing.
And, since Judy has been raving about knitting two socks at once I decided to try it again. I got "Knitting Circles Around Socks" on an inter-library loan and cast on immediately:
I did try a technique like this before, but I'm having a little less trouble this time. I still have to stop periodically and unwind everything, but maybe it will get better?
In between, I'm working on some hats and mittens which I'll show later on.
