I continue to be on a Sock Summit high! It seems that every time I have a few minutes, I’m grabbing my current sock obsession. You know how much I love Charlene Schurch’s sock patterns. Well, I was so wound up after the four sock-saturated days that I didn’t want to have to actually think about pattern selection. I just wanted to cast-on something and KNIT SOCKS!
Well, Charlene’s Little Box of Socks was the perfect solution! Particularly since I had grabbed two skeins of Imagination we had left over in the sample box. It may be a “little box” of patterns but they encompass a broad scope. I particularly love the patterns for hand-painted, or hand-dyed yarns.
The Ric Rac Rib pattern was exactly what I wanted. A very simple pattern that would make the most of the hand-painted colors in the Mermaid Lagoon colorway. The first sock went so quickly! You may have noticed that I’m working on Harmony DPNs. I know, I’m usually using the Magic Loop Method but I seem to be going through some sort of “retro” thing. I’m happy with the pointy, Harmony wood needles so I will stick to them for awhile.
