Off The Needles - Friday, March 13th

The blue variegated socks using Knit Picks Stroll fingering are finished and off the needles.  These are just a plain pair, since I thought the yarn could do the all the design work.

Now to decide which yarn to start another pair.  Remember these two skeins I bought last year?  They are from The Loopy Ewe Legends - Judy's Favorite Quilt (green/purple/white) and Denise's "Mandarin Duck", both in fingering weight dyed by Lorna's Laces.  I love both of these and am not sure I want to start socks or make something else.  I only have one skein of each.  Has anyone used this yarn for other things besides socks - shawls, hats, scarfs,?  If so, please share what pattern you used. The yarns are both long color lengths of variegated and high contrasting colors.

  4. Love the blue socks, they are such a pretty color. As a non-knitter, I can't help with your question, but I sure like the colors in both yarns.

  6. Very pretty socks. You'll have to save them for next winters, right? Pretty soon you won't be needing to wear them!
