This is what it looks like on my deck this morning. Yesterday was pretty much the same. We need the rain. My well has been a little cranky, so I know the water table is low. Hopefully the deluge of the last few days will help.
This weather however, is not conducive to taking lovely photos of finished socks.
Despite my best efforts, with various backgrounds and the back door wide open, it was tough to capture how beautifully this yarn knit up. Trust me. It's gorgeous. The yarn is from my Dye-O-Rama buddy. Jen L. of Monkeyknits. I used a simple stitch pattern, to let the vibrant colors do the real work. Jen L. named the color "Lana del Mar", because the color reminds her of the ocean. I guess with the water theme, it is appropriate that I finished them on such a rainy weekend.
I am off on my summer vacation this week. Today is the day where I choose which projects/yarns come with me. Such a tough decision. I've got a pile of sock yarn, each wanting to be the next pair. Of course Birch will go, and probably Turbulence from Knitting Nature. Since I will be in Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm, I'm sure there will be some yarn acquisition. . .must leave room in the suitcase for that!
For those who are interested, the stitch pattern on the socks is:
Cast on multiple of 4
Round 1: *k3, sl1; repeat from * to end
Round 2: knit
Just those two rounds, easy.
