Hederas! They're so beautiful and lacy! And despite the intricate look of these dear socks, they're super-duper easy to knit! A painless 4 row pattern repeat that is perfectly manageable to memorize and to zip right through. I enjoyed knitting these socks and they turned out just swell!
And I just can't say enough wonderful things about the fibery goodness of Sundara yarn. It's a dream to work with and look at that color-on-color action!
Details, details, and more details. This sock's got 'em. Ingenious pattern.
And the best part about these Hederas? Despite their lacy, holey-ness, these socks are still amazingly warm and toasty, because they're made from wool, of course! Mmmm...function and fashion all-in-one.
And so great to wear with my chunky, clunky old Birkenstock clogs.
These socks get a gold star for being awesome.
And due to an evening of protracted debauchery at Monk's (the drink menu at this awesome tavern is aptly referred to as the "Beer Bible") last night that involved the consumption of a goodly amount of this, there will be a slight delay on the unveiling of the Christmas cut-out cookies, as, at the moment, they remain unadorned. There will be, as many of you so astutely identified, some sweet Christmas camels frosted and ready to be eaten soon. Thanks for all of your comments!
(Side Note: I just switched to Blogger beta and there seems to be some problems in the way gmail streams comments into my email box...commenter reply emails no longer appear (even for those commenters whose emails used to show up) - it's super-annoying, because I want to respond to my comments! If anyone using Blogger beta has figured out a solution to this glitch, please let me know! But until then, I'll do my best to reply to my comments through the commenter's blog.)
Have a super Sunday, all!
