Cast on last night, the April sock for the knit.sock.love KAL on Ravelry. Cookie's "Mona" is a joy to knit. I'm using Grant Creek Yarn's "Mermaid's Perspective" and my trusty Hiya Hiya 2.25mm dps. It's going rapidly and won't take long to finish. I think it would have shown the pattern better in a solid or semi-solid yarn, but it is still going to be pretty.
Started in Florida and finished at home, these socks are Named Charleston and the pattern is drawn from the ironwork in that city. This is the first installment of Janel Laidman's Art & Sole Sock Club. I used Madeline Tosh Sock and 2.25mm dps. This was a toe-up sock and I started with 16" circs and finished with dps. Picture does not do the sock justice.
While vacationing in Florida I managed to work in some knitting while sitting by the pool in the wonderful warm sun. These are the first sock in the 2011 Cookie A Sock Club. the yarn is a wonderful wool/cashmere from String Theory (from Maine) and is wonderful to work with. Cookie's directions are so good and easy to knit. Can't wait for the second installment!
