FO: Stormy Weekend
Posted by Amber on May 13, 2008
Now that the rain has left DC for a minute, I can finally show you the socks I finished on my recent Texas trip!
Pattern: Rainy Day by Yuliya Sullivan; Originally from MagKnits, pre-implosion. Now available as a Ravelry download.
A 6 stitch x 4 row repeat even I can memorize!
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces, Shepherd Sock. Colorway: Ice Storm (January 2008 colorway from JimmyBeansWool.com)
Needles: Addi Turbo US 0; 32″ (magic loop!)
Time: March to May 2008.
Mods: Figured that since it was a 6 stitch repeat, I could just cast on more stitches to use some of my extensive collection of Lorna’s. So I went with 72 stitches (more stitches = more time to knit; therefore they weren’t so much a sock for a Rainy Day, but rather a Rainy Weekend). I also did an Eye of Partridge heel. I didn’t like it very much, although it is very pretty with the handpainted yarn–
I *heart* picots!
