I have been out for a while due to major PC problems. Hopefully all will be resolved by the end of this week ….
I did quite some knitting in the meantime. I have 4 projects going at this moment and I’m happy to show the first FO (finished object).
I got this pattern from a great book written by Wendy D. Johnson, called Socks from the toe-up. The explanations are clear and the photography is wonderful.
I totally agree with the quote from the Knitter’s Review on the backside of the book saying
“the photography is beautiful-lush and evocative on a broad scale while always zooming in for several close-up shots that clearly illustrate the crucial parts of each sock.”
I have taken up the plan to knit EVERY SINGLE PAIR! That makes it just 19 pairs to go. I think I can handle this, but it’ll take a loooong time.
I used Malabrigo sock yarn. A true delight! It’s pure merino wool, extremely soft. I have some more in my stash, so I look forward to trying out different colors.
I’ve noticed before that getting the right color photographed depends a lot on the amount of sunshine. The ply shown above probably gives the most truly and exact color and the last picture of this blog is the farest away from it. The exact color is closer to green than it is to brown. I just wanted to show a detail of the lace.
