Work in Progress Wednesday 113
Speaking of the fiber show, as mentioned, I'll be at the Vista Fiber Fiesta on October 13-14th from 10-4 in Vista, CA! There are a lot of great vendors this year, so if you live in the area, be sure to come on by!
This is what I've been working on like mad when I have any free time, which isn't much! I'm trying to finish at least one of the socks before the fiber show, so that I have an example of Witch's Brew knit up! The pattern is Simple Skyp Socks and they really are simple! I didn't even need to print out the pattern, that's how easy it is! I had it memorized after the first couple of rows (it's only a two row repeat). As mentioned, it is in my Candy Skein October 2012 colorway, Witch's Brew, which is on sale now through October 31st! You can purchase it here in Yummy fingering. I have to say, I know I'm bias, but I love love love this colorway. It knits up even better than I thought it would! These might become my favorite socks I've knit and I know I will be doing this pattern again at some point. It's a little like another favorite pattern of mine, Hermione's Everyday Socks, which I've knit a few times. So far, this sock fits like a dream (I did change the heel, but more on that when I finish the socks).
That's it from me today! I hope you have a great rest of the week and I'll see you on Friday, with (hopefully) the above sock completed!
