New Socks

Well it has been a while since I have made a pair pf socks for myself so I believe it is about time.  Managed to score some lovely Lorna’s Laces Solemate in the color Black Purl and I love it.  Although it is hard to see in the pick it has a nice mix of gray, lavender and in some spots a tinge of teal.  For the pattern I went with one of Wendy Johnson’s patterns Double Eyelet Rib socks.  I love how well written Wendy’s patterns are.  Her instructions are right on and thus far I have never hit any pattern errors at all which is much appreciated.

So far I am only at the tip of the toe but after sitting down to knit today I should get a bit further.  Gotta love handmade socks as nothing keeps the toes as warm.  Take a look!

    Love the color mix in this yarn. The purples make it girly but the charcoal grays add a bit of sophistication. Think it would look great on a cowl too.
