I've been playing around with Sockapalooza options again. I bought some Colinette Jitterbug on Saturday, so of course now I've gone back to the lilac/pink Koigu.
I was going to try this pattern with the pink Lorna's Laces that I wound up the other week but somehow I seem to have managed to LOSE a wound up ball of sock yarn, together with my Go-Knit purse. My suspicions are that it has something to do with Toby tidying the house the other day while I was ill in bed, but I don't want to seem ungrateful, so I'm keeping quiet about it for now.
However, it's not all bad, as I think the Koigu and the pattern go pretty well together.
The pattern is the Diagonal Rib Socks which I have saved as a PDF but I think is available again on the Interweave Knits site if you subscribe to the Knitting Daily thing they've got going on.
Easy pattern to memorise, only 4 rows to a repeat and 2 of them are the same. I knitted the bit above on the bus into town today. I really hope I find that Lorna's Laces as I was hoping to have that in reserve to do heels and toes so I can stretch out that rather measly Koigu yardage.
I'm beavering away on my black stocking stitch project, which is nearing completion. I'm not holding out on you by not showing any photos, it's just that photos of it do not look good. I'm hoping to finish it this evening so will be able to share it with you when it's done.
I have been very remiss about replying to emails and comments recently. With half term and family visiting, my time on the computer has been snatched. If you've emailed me in the last 2 or 3 weeks and haven't heard anything, I'm not ignoring you and hopefully you should hear from me soon.
