Sweater, what sweater?
Maybe I can distract you with some yummy socks! Sorry for the crappy picture. I had to go to the post office today and by the time I got back the sun was gone. But, if you look closely you can see a tiny part of Wicked on the left edge of the photo. FYI the body is done, now it's just the sleeves to go.
Pattern: Squid by MamaBlue
Needles: US 1 1/2
Yarn: Mama Blue Troika Sock in Ink
Pattern Notes: Great pattern! Easy to follow, but not mind-numbingly boring. I had only just discovered Mama Blue when the original Squid and Ink kits came out, so I missed out on them. Luckily, I was able to snag the highly-sought-after Ink in Troika Sock recently, so I gave it a go. It's kind of a bonus that I missed out on the original, because the kit included the simple merino yarn and I'm an MCN girl myself.
There was a time when I swore off of buying sock patterns. Mostly because there are so many that are free and I also have a crapton of knitting books, many of which have some quality sock patterns in them. However, I couldn't resist this one, and I think these are calling to me for my next pair. In fact, I may have already gone ahead on bought it. Ravelry is too good of an enabler. Grr. But it is almost my birthday, so it's ok, right?
