Second I have finished the pair of socks that I designed from the Yarn Yard June club yarn. I have renamed them my Cornish Scallop pattern and have nearly finished writing up the pattern! They have turned out to be a close fitting and delicate sock - just right for summer.
I have also been working on and off on these socks - they are Roza's socks from the Spring Interweave knits and are a really attractive brioche rib - they are a relaxing knit and in a fit of enthusiasm I cast on the second sock last night.
I can see you are impressed with all this finishing and progress on the darkest recesses of my knitting basket..
...oops...I couldn't help it... I wanted to see what the Cornish Scallop sock would look like in a gently coloured hand paint without the solid stripes and remembered that I had just the perfect yarn in my stash. This is Seacoast Handpaint in the colour 'Butte'. It really makes me think of the colours inside a shell. The yarn is half merino and half tencel so is a very silky, summery feeling knit.
I am off to Woolfest now so I'd better start packing - I've sorted out my travel knitting so all I have to do is pack my clothes. I wonder if I have any clean socks....
