My Own Private Summer of Socks
But I have two socks to show you, anyway.
First is the first completed sock from the Woolgirl Sock Club Frogger (Froggin'? Frogged?) yarn by Dashing Dachs. This is in sport weight, which I love because it knits up lickety split. I didn't get quite the gauge to get the nice stripey pattern, and so I got a nice pooly pattern, which is fine with me.
Second up is the slower-moving but so pretty Rivendell Socks from the incredible book by Janet Laidman called The Eclectic Sole. I love these socks, and I love the yarn (Twinkle Toes by Chameleon Colorworks) and I love the book. The yarn colorway is Glacier Moraine (Glacial Moraine?) and isn't quite as contrasty as the photo looks.
And I think I couldn't do lace! Ha!
