Another one bites the dust!
And boy, are they gorgeous. I was worried that the stitch pattern wasn't going to stand out enough because of the wild yarn, but when they're on my feet and the stitches stretch out, the cables really pop. I love this pattern - it's a little hard to get the hang of crossing the stitches at first, but it's easy to memorize and really is pretty.
The details - Conwy from Nancy Bush's Knitting On The Road. Yarn - Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in the Black Purl colorway. Needles - Addi Turbo circs, size 1.
It seems like you guys were pretty evenly split on whether to give these or keep them (thanks a lot!), so I'm going to keep knitting socks and see what happens. She may get these if I run out of time, or if these end up being the most fitting pattern. I'm also thinking of knitting up Yukon Leaves and Friday Harbor and seeing how those go. I am truly a sockaholic.
In mommy news, I am reading the BEST book - The Big Rumpus by Ayun Halliday. It's written by a mom of two who started her own 'zine to keep from going nuts. She can be quite crass and is not afraid to use the f-word, but if your sense of humor is irreverent like mine, you'll love this book. I highly recommend it!
