Knitting by Judy @ 7:58 AM

Although sick, I did manage to make a few string loops with a couple of sticks.

wavy socks

As Shetha pointed out in her comment, working on lace might not be the best choice while full of decongestants, but socks seemed a safe bet.

This is Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in the Vera colorway. The stitch pattern is a standard wavy pattern with every 6th row purled. Needles are Inox Gray size US#2.

I’m not normally a “pink” person, but this yarn just called to me. I like the way the browns, khaki, cream and touches of teal mix with the bright raspberry. And I really love the way it’s knitting up. It reminds me of grandma’s old afghan.

I first tried to join the bandwagon and do Jaywalker socks with this yarn. But, after a few false starts, I just didn’t like the way that the Jaywalker pattern looked upside down — me being a toe-up person and all — and I tried this instead. I used a fan-style toe so that the lines of increases on the toe match up with the decreases in the pattern. I did that by accident on the lace socks I made for E, and I have always wanted to try that again.

And this pair, I’m making sure, fits!

    • If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
