starting new socks
Did you notice? That was three scarves in a row; three very different scarves, but three scarves nonetheless. Odd, huh? That makes today a good day to cast on socks.
Here's another pattern that's been in my queue for a long time - Socks for Christy by Linda Fisher. I love the look of this pattern but I've been putting off starting them; I guess I thought the pattern would be harder than it is. One word of warning: there are lots of k3togs and sssks, making me very glad I invested in some unbreakable Blackthorn needles last year. I'm also very glad that the Fleece Artist BFL sock yarn I'm using is not at all splitty. Splitty yarn combined with all these twisted and crossing stitches would be a nightmare!
