A Wee Bit of Knitting

Even though this has been a busy week for us, I have gotten a little bit of knitting done. This is the Waving Lace Sock from IK Spring 2004. I'm knitting them with a wonderful raspberry colored handdyed sock yarn from Tess Yarns. This yarn reminds me of Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock, but I haven't actually played with the yarns side by side. I am just in love with this color - its slightly darker in real life than it photographed, but you can see the range of tones it has. I love knitting with the hand dyed "solid" types of yarn because they are so much more interesting than a flat, commercial solid, but they don't camouflage the stitch pattern either. That's it for now, I'll be back when I have something interesting to show - like a heel flap!
