Better photos once they get to their new home with the fabulous Angie.
The pattern is a variation of my A Simple Twist. The version that I love best, in fact. The baby cables are lost in the pattern of the yarn, but I'm okay with that.
This is the yarn from the other day and it as a lot of fun to knit with and hard to put down. Thank goodness for the weekend when I can spend a lot of time plopped down in front of the television with my knitting.
I used my beloved 2.75mm dpns and my usual CCSR heels and toes. They took me three days to knit and, no, I don't want to hear about it.
Next up is a pair of socks for the lady who was left comment nine thousand last week.
Because of how many people are only into knitting blogs for free stuff and attention, I try not to have announced contests here. I don't need the drama and have enough of my own weirdness, thanks.
However, I do want to thank (reward) my regular commenters because, without y'all, this place would not be nearly as much as it is. So I do what I can and hope that I remember to mention it here.
Comment #8K was left by my darling Opal back in June. It took me forever and then some to get it together enough to send her some random weirdness*, but she seemed to enjoy it. Btw, I think she lives in a postal black hole because it took almost two weeks for her little package to arrive and I shipped it Priority. o.0
I promise I shall try to get better about this sort of thing.
In my defense, I didn't knit her anything, so there wasn't a reason to talk about it. Plus everyone reads Opal, anyway.
Since socks on plate this time, I should do a better job of filling y'all in when the time comes.
Happy Sunday, people!
* I gave her the choice of socks, lace or random weirdness. She picked the weirdness. I guess that explains why we're friends.
