As usual, after a busy time with the kids,
I spent the day resting but one sock pleasantly finished-
and the other well on its way!
I had forgotten the difference in this yarn ,which is Hawthorne
from KnitPicks; it feels more like cotton than wool.
It dyes beautifully giving much depth of color within the strand.
I'm ready to begin the gusset here-and after the heel,
the sock will soar because I can't wait to begin
the new yarn in a pair of socks!
Such a pretty shade. What pattern are you knitting?ReplyDelete
I hated Hawthorne when I first used it but it does make a nice sturdy sock. Those reels I've been using are Hawthorne but I swear they don't feel the same.ReplyDelete
So, is there are subtle shade of purple in that blue? So pretty.ReplyDelete
Are those going to be for Bill?ReplyDelete
I love the sock(s) and that lovely color.ReplyDelete
I've never tried the hawthorne before. I usually only buy Felici for the stripes. I still have so much yarn leftover from our dyeing days - I'm not sure I'll ever knit through it all!ReplyDelete
The colours in that yarn are lovely though!
Nice socks! And toe-up no less. I don't enjoy that method because the casting on drives me nuts.ReplyDelete
Your socks look great. I like the Hawthorne yarn too and use it often.ReplyDelete
