Having done all of that ripping recently, I decided that I needed a fresh start, you know, to keep my sock love and knitting mojo from slipping away entirely. And, having had such great success with the STR Rose Quartz yarn, I decided to get out some more STR and cast on a new sock--you know, to replace those two that were ripped. I can't rightly expect others to take my One-Woman Single-Sock Liberation-Movement seriously with just one sock on the needles, right?
Enter a skein of Blue Moonstone. And Anna's super-schmancy Giotto pattern. These two things combine to create a most happy resurgence of sock love. Throw in a gorgeous stitch marker handmade by Nora and you have, well, heaven.
Picot attempt number two was a success. Golly, I love picot teeth. And the lacy, holey, YO-y Giotto cuff is clever and so, so pretty. (I am already planning to make many a pair of stockinette socks with this Giotto cuff, as Kris is planning to do with her pretty Fleece Artist Giottos.)
Thin yarn be gone (I'll be destashing some thin yarn, soon)! Hello, sweet STR friends. So sproingy and substantial. So full of pastel goodness (who knew I was capable of loving such soft, sweet, pretty colors?).
A happy beginning to more single socks (see? one done!). And look! It seems as though I have a partner-in-crime for single sock knitting! The Two-Women Single-Sock Liberation-Movement has been born!
