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


It's A Tidal Wave Folks

I really am enjoying working this pattern. The yarn is so busy it doesn't show as it should, but I am determined to get rid of the yarn. STR in Dutch Canyon color way on 2.25 needles.
The yarn is nice,tightly spun. But the color is not something I would have picked out in person. Damn the internet.
If you want a sock with a bit of pattern this is for you. Easy to work it just flows. The pattern forms sideways shells that move around the leg. And of course there is a bit of warping of the stocking. Which is probably why the design stops at the ankle. Which is fine with me, I will probably just do a ribbing on the instep. In Barbara Walker's Second Treasury (I think) there is such a sideways curved design called Madeira Lace. BW says that it does not bias. Interesting.
If you are looking for pretty sock yarn, in colors that won't make you feel ill, and you won't need to reserve your place in line check out Jayne's Fab Yarn
Winter is back. While Joan is getting ready to be buried in snow, we have rain and cold again. Thank you Norse gods of weather, I love the cold and hate the heat and humidly of summer

Half way down the leg

Pattern:Tidal Wave
Yarn: Socks That Rock, Dutch Canyon
Needles: Beloved INOX grays 2.25

That's a beautiful sock, Suzann. I love the lace pattern. Just keep chippin' away at me. One of these days I'm going to cast on a sock and then you'll really be in trouble. I'll have questions. ;-}

That is darned pretty Suzanne! I haven't yet moved out of the ribbed leg arena. Will have to try someday.

One of my Friday night knit-group friends is hoping her DH will get out of NYC (delayed due to snowstorms) in time for them to leave Sunday afternoon for Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was 85 degrees here today. My wisteria is blooming, there are roses popping on the bushes we cut back only 2 months ago, and the air is sucking all the moisture out of my skin and many of the plants.

On a knitterly note, your socks are AWESOME!!
