Well it's supposed to be time for "K" in the ABC along and I got KNOTHING!! Knothing grabs me to write about, poor sad little K! Maybe L will be better.
So when ya got knothing and all else fails, the P-Man steps up to the plate as a distraction....
I started a new sock and I'm in LOVE!! This is the beginning of the Child's French Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks by Knancy Bush.
I'm using Louet Gems Pearl in Teal....oh how I heart this yarn!! So soft, such stitch definition....perfection!! I've used the light sportweight Gems Opal before (and Koigu which is made from the Opal and then dyed) but this is my first experience with the fingering weight and it's dreamy!!
I'm also using my DPN's for the first time in a while and oh how I missed them!! Yes, magic loop with a slick pair of addi's is nice but nothing compares to the flow and artistry of the humble DPN!! And I can live without all that time spent schlepping cables thru stitches, with DPNs I get to KNIT!
Here's a close up of the stitch pattern....I love the "pebbled" look of the background!
While waiting to start my "big" WW KIP day project, I'm enjoying just socking it...knothing is better than socknitting, it's like the potato chip of knitting, you gotta have more than one!! And of course one can never have enough sock yarn! I'm even getting a head start on my Holiday Knitting, WOOT!!
Now I leave you with my resident supermodel...
