The old new blue
the Wallflower socks by Stephanie van der Linden. While I am knitting these, enjoying the clever heal and the way the pattern carries on towards the instep, I am thinking to myself if there can be more beautiful socks anywhere ever. Even though I have done the first, I did not have any trouble casting on for the second sock because I get to knit that beauty all over again. (I am not good at color-knitting, so the uneven stitches bother me a lot, but hopefully the handwriting (-knitting) will get better.)
I recently bought two sock knitting books: Think Outside the Sox and Around the World in Knitted Socks. I really like both of these books a lot and am happy that I bought these. I have to buy most of my books online and while often I am pleased with what I get, at times I end up with a book that I am not so happy with.
Wool with you,
