One Last Look at Baby Socks and Then...Onward!

As promised, I actually have something to show today. Here are all four of the baby socks. I made the red ones with short row heels and the green ones with heel flaps. I don't know if one style will stay on better or not, I just wanted to experiment. I'm thinking about making some like the red ones for Christmas ornaments or gift decoration. I think it would be a great way to use up those little bits of yarn I always have left over after a pair of socks. I hope to get all this cuteness packaged up and sent out this weekend.

Once I finished the gift knitting, I started another pair of socks for me (I didn't want to work on Soleil last night for some reason). I had been dragging around the Strawberry and Banana Yarn (AKA Pink Lemon yarn) from Sunshine Yarns in my knitting bag ever since I got it but wasn't sure what to do with it. The yarn has short lengths of color and I knew it wouldn't stripe and I was also pretty sure that any kind of stitch pattern would be pretty well lost in the color changes. Last night, right before I started knitting the yarn into a plain stockinette stitch sock (it would have worked but been a bit boring), I realized that Melanie's Twist, the stitch pattern that Regina invented for me had to be used on this yarn. So, here's what I have so far:The twist pattern isn't as obvious as it is on my Sockapaloooza socks that she knit for me, but check out those chevrons! I love the way the random color spots are tilting up and down. This stitch pattern is working wonderfully in this yarn. I can't wait to see what these socks look like finished. As soon as I post this entry to the blog, I'll try to make a link to the Melanie's Twist Stitch pattern in the sidebar. Thanks again Regina for such a great stitch pattern!

I can't believe how adorable the little socks are! They will be so perfect for cool weather here in NM! I am so excited to see them in person - and then of course to put them on Allen's little feet! Thank you! Dalese

Oh, WOW !! That's actually the effect I was going for when I invented your Twist. I wanted the colors to undulate like waves while the stitches twisted right and left, but the colors were too subtle and no undulation happened. Love those socks !!

I'm loving Melanie's Twist,too. The two or three round color changes in Sockotta remind me of the beach, a favorite vacation destination. I'll use this pattern a lot! Thanks!!!!
