Pat's Knitting and Quilting
May 27, 2010
I usually know exactly what I'm doing when I'm knitting socks - NOT this time! I blindly followed the directions putting all my faith in this math genius designer, and much of the time I had no idea what part of the sock I was working on or where the current section would end up in the final plan. It was fun to let go and enjoy this mystery construction and it all worked!
Pattern: Skew by Lana Holden from Knitty Winter 2009

These socks were fun all around and the fit is great!
I loved spinning this luxurious Fawn Suri Silk pencil roving from Hubbert Farms - it was such a silky, smooth fiber - I felt like I was spinning human hair...my own hair, since it is almost exactly the same color!
Loosely spun and plied for lovely, shiny, drapey (is that a word?) 2 ply laceweight yarn.
The halo of soft fiber on this yarn is incredible - here is a closer picture so you can get an idea of what it really looks like.
