I seem to have missed a post that I was sure I'd written. If I did, it's all gone now, consumed by the ether. But that's okay -- I can do it now. Better late than never. And it's fitting, since today, so far, I'm thinking about socks.
My second Sock de la Mer is at that point in top-down socks that I find rather magical. It's at a cusp -- it could still be something else as long as I don't knit that next row, in which I begin the heel. I love that feeling...that sense of potential.
Will this be a mitt of some sort? a glove? a mitten? a fingerless thing to keep wrists warm?
Or is it the start of a sleeve?
It's a sock.... a lovely nifty sock....
I don't know if you can see them, but on this sock, I couldn't resist playing with something that Anne said in her description of what she was doing with this sock design. She sees seaweed waving up the leg, with the inevitable air bubbles escaping out of the top to form the ribbing. I thought it would be fun to let a few of those air bubbles show up in the leg of the sock, as they work their way up to the ribbing/surface. I put the bubble cables in randomly around the leg.
I'll use this to distinguish more easily between right and left socks (since I do that right and left toe thing when I knit socks.)
I thought it was fun...
The tops are as close to the same as I could get -- but evidently the balls were put up as inverses or something. The toes clearly do not match. But.... they match DH's toes, and that's what's important, right?
Another one for the FO pile (and these were in Mission Possible too... w00t)
