Victorian Lace Socks and Other Good News


I have some good news today! My Victorian Lace Sock Pattern is the June / July 2007 pattern for the Six Socks Knitalong. If you want a copy of this pattern you will need to join the Six Socks Knitalong and download the pattern from the files section. I am very excited to have people knitting my pattern. It was a lot of fun to design and a nice lacey summer project. The pattern is also fairly elastic so it should work well in a cotton blend sock yarn.

In other news, I went to my LYS to attempt to solve the Shetland Lace Stole yarn crisis. Miracle of miracles the store had another ball of the same yarn in the same dye lot! I should play the lottery with that type of luck. Hopefully I will finish the stole soon and then on to the magic of blocking.

Thank you for providing this lovely pattern. I just happened to have a skein of Knit Picks Bare on hand that I had dyed pink.
I am half way down the leg and it is looking great.

Your socks is beautiful. I haven't started yet, still thinking what colour I should use, I may have to go shopping.

Thank God you got more yarn for your stole! The sock looks wonderful. Maybe I can coax my sister to make me a pair since she's the sock maven in the family.

Hi, Lorri!

Thanks for noticing Ayla's cat bed. She tries to stay so aloof when I visit, but she cannot control herself when I start knitting. She has to see what I'm doing, and then pretty soon the paw starts batting the yarn and she's hooked!

BTW- tag! You're now one of the tagged for 'seven things' - see more info at http://thewarminghouse.blogspot.com/.
