Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


Diamond Variegated Yarn

Diamond Variegated Yarn
Diamond Variegated Yarn,
originally uploaded by Suzann.
The same diamond pattern done with variegated yarn and white. The variegated yarn is Sugar & Cream. You can see how the alternating purl and knit diamonds form a diagonal line. Although the pattern seems tight and bunched up when you are working it, a dip in some hot water and it flattens out nicely
I am still not happy with how the sides look.

On the other hand we have this

A Barbara Walker pattern, in which the work is slid back and forth on dpn or circular needles. Much like how ICord is made. A fun pattern. Sort of eye popping. I am thinking this would make a wild pair of socks. It would have to be worked in really fine sock yarn. These puppys would glow in the dark.
