My squares for SIBOL are done, my French Socks are awaiting a second skein of yarn so that I can finish them, and my Lace Ribbon Scarf awaits my attention at work .... I HAD TO cast on another pair of socks, didn't I?
Taking a cue from Tangled Up In Sticks and String I decided on No Purl Monkeys. After all, Dee knows sock knitting. I'm knitting the large size from Knit. Sock. Love. because I don't find that this pattern has much stretch. They look too big on the needles, but they look okay when I try them on. I just hope I'm not left with baggy ankles!
The yarn is Top Cat from Wandering Cat Yarns in a colourway called Mermaid's Delight. With 10% cashmere it's lovely to work with and the colourway IS delightful. It's refreshing to have a variegated yarn that behaves nicely - no pooling or misbehaving so far. There are blues, purples and greens in there, but none overwhelms the others. Well done Rhonda and Valerie!
It's Wednesday ... work-in-progress Wednesday ... so go on and have a look at the wonderful things through the links at Tami's Amis. You know you want to!
