I’ve been working on a test knit pattern for Julia Riede – a pair of socks that are coming out quite lovely! I’ve been meaning to blog about them, but I’ve been busy knitting and each time I wanted to talk about them, I didn’t have an up-to-date photo to share. I’m nearing the finish of the first sock and I’ve received a lot of compliments from people – knitters and non-knitters alike! I haven’t had Matt take photos of the sock in progress yet, so these are the best I could do with my little HP that likes to hate me (seriously, I need a new point and shoot camera) and the lack of natural light since it’s been overcast lately and I get home after it’s pitch black out. Ahem… anyhow… photos!
I am really loving these socks! The yarn is fantastic to work with (silk, cashmere, wool blend) and I really like the lace pattern. The calf shaping is really nice and I’m loving watching the pattern develop. I’ve only done a little knitting where I didn’t know what the finished item would look like, so it’s really interesting to see the sock taking shape. So far it’s been great working with Julia and the socks are turning out to be gorgeous. I’m anxious to get them finished so Matt can take some nice photos!
