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


Stick A Fork In It

I finished the Cozy Cable sweater Friday. It is so rainy that I am holding off blocking it. I started a pair of big kids socks. A strand of Opal and a strand of DWIA. A very nice washable merino I got from Elann last year. The two strands together equal DW weight, more or less. The colors are so vibrant that it is hard to get an accurate picture of them. I started another pair using some leftover Patons and a strand of sock yarn. Nice and cushy, but I need to frog them and start over with less stitches. These are heading for a size XXL. :-)
I would really like to do another sweater before the deadline of March 31. And I would love to take a crack at SK Sun Ray shawl Sun Ray Shawl And I want to get back to my Shetland Lace socks. Shetland Lace Socks That should take care of this year :-)

Great, warm looking sweater, Suzann! I like the idea of your socks using the sock yarn plus the Diwa - hmmm, I have both of those! Stay dry!!

Oh, I had trouble REMEMBERING Diwa-you didn't like it because it didn't have enough body for socks-what a smart fix!

I tried two skiens of sock yarn and it just looked a mess. Too much patterning going on.
I love Diwa, so soft. But a bit limp for socks. Would be wonderful for a shawl of baby things. I have a goodly amount of Diwa but all in two ball amounts.
My dd says the kid who gets these socks will never lose them. They vibrate with color :-) These are working up to a fast knit. I am finished with one sock, and ready to cast on for the next one.

Suzann- Your cozy cable sweater turned out so well. I hope you are curled up somewhere knitting up a sock. Bri
