Back to the usual

My secret project is done & handed off to the proper person Monday night, just in time for her to take pics before sending them on. I hope I did well. I am back to my sleeves, but for a little something different I started the transitional rows from the toes to the foot on my Cleopatra's Stockings. Wow, sock club members weren't kidding with the twisted stitch pattern being a little tricky. (eta - it's that cabling a yo & a regular st tbl!) This knit looks like it will need some quality focus time.


So I've decided that I need a sock WIP that doesn't require as much focus and am gearing up to wind up my lovely Socks that Rock lightweight in Motley Hue...


for a fellow Sock Camper's pattern - Spring Forward socks from knitty.com's Summer 08 issue.


Hope everyone has a lovely holiday weekend!

Maybe it's a bit hard, but oh, that purple yarn is beautiful! I'm sure the socks are going to come out amazing.
