hot pink socks, noro mittens, oh my!
two FO's and half done sock today...
after so much grey with kellen's socks, i couldn't resist something colorful. i finished these in two afternoons, the weekend after i finished kellen's socks. they're done in noro kureyon #134, made out of one skein. i intended for them to be fraternal twins but i had no idea how different they'd be! i love them though. very warm and perfect for early spring.
these are the first socks i made for me. right after i got Knit Socks!
i made the first one, and got all the way to the heel of the second before i lost interest and started k's socks. i finally finished them up thursday night. they're made of lamb's pride worsted, in lotus pink and a mystery ball of purple i had left over from the felted clogs i made at christmas (i think it *might* be amythyst). they're so thick, a little wonky, but warm.
finally, my current WIP, Knitty's Tiptoes
, designed by my yarn hero, stephanie pearl-mcphee
. they're a mother's day gift for my mom, who wears clogs a lot, and therefore can show off those tulips!
