On the left is a not so great picture of my square. I have already sent the square off into the world, otherwise I would take another picture. This is handspun and navajo plyed and the stitch pattern is fishbone lace.
The picture on the right is the beginnings of Pomatomus socks. I cast on for these last night. I was going to knit a pair of Retro Rib, but after I got about two inches into those, I thought I would try something new. So the yarn came off the needles and was turned into this. Speaking of the yarn – I am using Wildfoote. I shall withhold my opinion until I have more of a knitted sample to judge. The problem is that during the knitting process, I like a thicker sock yarn, something along the lines of Socks that Rock or Cherry Tree Hill. It feels better in my hands and makes the knitting that much more enjoyable. For wearing purposes however, I often prefer my Trekking socks since they fit more comfortably inside my shoes. I am betting the Wildfoote will fall into this category. Such a conundrum!
Tomorrow I am traveling to the Poconos. I shall be hanging out with a group of friends from high school. Socks make the perfect traveling project. I hope this pattern will be ok for simultaneous knitting and visiting.
The daily pork report is coming to you from the foyer. The big brick wall in the foyer is in fact the back of the fireplace in the living room. I am posting two pictures since yesterday was skipped over and I know what a crushing disappointment that must have been for you both. ; )
