I couldn't resist...


But seriously, is this not the coolest sock ever?? I just had to cast on for the Rainbow Socks from this months Magknits in Sereknity Cowgirl Perfect Sock. I have spent DAYS trying to resist, but I just had to see if the marriage of this colorway and pattern would do what I hoped and it does! It is a very addicting knit, even with all the purling, and is going surprisingly fast. I am using size 2 needles (they were what I had available) and the fabric is soft and the size should be just right. Here a shot of the other side...

I am very definitely going to do 6 short row sections for the longer cuff. Back to knitting (and laundry -- tons of laundry. No dyeing until the machine is free. UG.) I leave you with one other irresistable...

ain't he the cutest??

That's great! Definitely gonna have to get some of that colorway!

Lori said...

OH, but I do have Tree Frog, that might look good! Do you think the other six socks on the needles will mind if I cast on another?

Hey Lori! Thanks for the compliments (and everyone else, too!) I think the sock would look great in Tree Frog. I'd love to see it, if you make them. And don't worry, my Poppy, Clapotis, Bar Harbor bag and multiple mittens had to agree this was a good move.

LOVE the socks!
Now... where's Tashi??? I'm waiting for a photo of the brothers together! Better yet, how about the Xmas card pic this year of your 2 human children, the dogs and miss Lilah (I know you'd smack me if I asked for the kitties too)??

Tashi is still recovering from a very. bad. haircut. She has declined all requests for a photo op.

I finally found you! I love that pattern and yarn together. I'm thinking of trying it with some Vesper sock yarn, myself.
