I stitched a companion pattern to the Victorian pinkeep, it was a quick stitch, and finish (my fave!) I sort of worked backwards on this one: had the pattern, fell in love with the backing fabric~~and made everything else match it!
pattern: basic stockinette, women's med
needles: knitpicks size 1 dpn's
yarn: Aktion by Lang yarns
I'm pretty pleased with the striping on these socks. I actually went through the trouble of finding the right place in the stripes to start the second sock and cut the yarn. I've NEVER done that before, usually I'm not fussed about the stripes matching up. Although with this yarn and those blocks of brown striping, I thought it might look a bit weird if they didn't match. And if they seem short in the leg to you......well, they are. I like shorter socks, and well, I'm short too~~so that equals a pretty short sock! Does make the knitting go faster though :)
I'm off to get my evening chores finished up so that I can move on to the more important task of needlework!!! And you have 4 days left to leave a comment on the previous post to be entered in the tin drawing!
And I'm having serious spacing issues with blogger if anyone has some suggestions!!!
