Behind curtain number one October 24, 2006
The contest prize:
A skein of sock yarn dyed by me and a set of Kitchener stitch markers (may not be the exact ones pictured). Man those things are hard to photograph. So far the odds are pretty good… only a handful of entrants. Tell your friends!
*end of prize content*
And much more in the spirit of Socktober than ripping out socks, I finished a pair of socks!
Pattern: my own; toe up; short row heel; 3×1 rib
Yarn: Socks that rock mediumweight in Carbon.
i think…. i guess it could actually be carbon dating. i can’t remember and i lost the ball band immediately. probably when i first brought it home and started rolling around in the big pile of new yarn. i lOVE knitting in the medium weight. The socks knit up quickly, and i don’t mind that the socks are a little thick. it is actually very useful since most of my shoes are too big and i need big socks to keep them on. and i know this probably isn’t new information to you, but man that yarn is nice. I have been coveting the new haul over at januaryone. Go look at it. I mean, does it get any better than that?
