In a continuing series of short blog entries about argyle sock progress, I bring you the finished Happy Socks, aka, the Dunkin' Donut Argyles, aka the socks you'd wish I'd finish already and get on with the knitting you care about.
To briefly sum up: the pink and the green yarn is JaWoll Superwash, and the orange is Dale Baby Ull. Yes, that is a star toe you see there. I was feeling like trying something new there too, because intarsia and teensy needles just wasn't crazy enough, I know.
And if you're new here and are curious about such things, the chart is back a few blog entries along with a tutorial on how to make some of your own. And yes, they are knit flat. Don't ask me why, please.
So now that I've satisfied my self-imposed rules for casting-on something new by getting these socks off the needles, I am awaiting Anne's Wing of the Moth shawl pattern which she has promised to make available today. I have mistakenly credited Miriam with this shawl a couple of times, so I want to make special note to anyone who may not be familiar with Anne's beautiful pattern that hers is the design I have been pining for. Today I am checking her blog about once every thirty minutes, and while I wait, I have cast on with some of my Web's booty, Donegal Tweed colour #880, for Kate's Sunrise Circle Jacket. One thing off the needles and two things on? And I wonder how I get myself into trouble.
