Cherry Cola Socks with a Triple Twist
Another pair finished. This pattern is Triple Twist by Monica Jines, and the yarn is Woolly Boully Meanie in colorway Cherry Cola. Both came from the Loopy Ewe. Loved the pattern. Since it was a 72 stitch cast on and size US 1 needles, it took longer than usual to finish. I wasn't crazy about the yarn. This is the first time I've knit with a nylon blend, and I found it a little squeeky. But the colorway is gorgeous.
I immediately cast on the Log Cabin Socks from Handknit Holidays. Completely different knit--48 stitch cast on with size 5 US needles, I knit this much in only a couple of hours. I can probably finish one sock per day. I'm using the suggested Cork yarn, the result of a bad few months on ebay scrounging around for this stuff.
That's all I have to show you--no new yarn cause I haven't bought any, surprise surprise!
