Pure Breeze Yarntini - one down, one to go


I love this yarn, it is so fresh! I can hear steel drums and taste a margarita. I used Wendy Johnson's generic toe-up pattern. My ideas of granduer - to make a picot edge were forgotten, so I finished with a little 3 x 3 rib. I'm not crazy about how my heel came out a little "meh" at the gusset. I started on dpn's but after breaking yet another, I switched up to two addi turbo circulars - where have these been all of my knitting life? Waaaay faster than my sticky bamboos of choice. I will not give up on dpns because I just like how they feel but for a "vanilla" sock where the stitches can fly by without a lot of concentration, addi's might just step up the speed a bit.

So what's next? My other Pomatomus? The other Yartnini? I'm think Yarntini will be cast on to keep as my TV knitting, and then I should cast on my other Pomatomus...but Sundara's April installment beckons. So Dahlia here I come? I just love the choices knitting brings for me - they are all good.


I also got some wonderful handmade soap yesterday from Nell over at Chicken Knits - she has opened an etsy shop. Limey Coconut and Somali Rose from BrownBag Soap...both positively delicious.

Thanks for the links. And I'm thrilled that you like the soaps!

Love that yarntini sock. I have to finish a couple things before casting on but your sock really makes me want to get started!

Nice work. I think you should stay the course - FOs come so much more quickly when you do them one at a time! I find that if I wait too long between pieces of the same FO (like a pair of socks) I forget all those little teeny tiny "adjustments" (mistakes) that I made on the first one...
