Red sock


Here's Harry's Broomstick Sock from Charmed Knits knit up with some leftovers and a beautiful red merino superwash from Pagewood Farm. The color is beautiful, but my favorite is still Jitterbug. Now that I've read the Knitter's Book of Yarn, I realize that it's the extra plies in the Jitterbug merino that I love. I also see that a little elastic knitted into the ribbing at the top of the Alpaca Sox would be smart. I'm still working on the Opal sock. I'm going to re-try the Trekking and the Bearfoot at a smaller gauge.

It grieves me that you don't get more responses to your blog. I think that anyone who blogs every day deserves a response (though mea culpa--I read every day but seldom respond). I love your creativity and your energy! Thanks for putting your stuff out there.

I liked that Jitterbug, too. Now I know why. Talk about tight plies, I'm crocheting with teeny tiny cotton thread for a Japanese kit and thinking what super fine socks the thread would make.

How come it is finished so fast? When miscelenious is finished with your pixies may I borrow them too?
