To swap or not to swap...that is the question
My Embossed Leaves sock is finished. I am involved in two single sock swaps - so I started the sock with my pals' taste in mind and because I love the pattern and this Sundara yarn. But who to give it to? I am still working out the finer details, em. I soaked the sock in well, SOAK, for about 30 minutes last night with just a teeny bit of wash out - it is blocked, and ready.
Today I took the afternoon off of work (how decadent) expressly to move forward on my Firestarter. The pattern is by Yarnissima. (come join the Sock-A-long here)
The picture I realize is slightly odd -I think it is because of the position of my needles, I had to center the side traveling stitches in order to use my favorite 5 needle method. I am about to embark on the gusset, and given this is my first try at "traveling" stitches...I'm pretty stoked. The yarn is my prized Wollmeise, in Veilchen. (Wollmeise's new shop is OPEN and found here - no pressure.) Again, this could be a swap sock. If anything, anyone who could be my potential pal will be in the dark as to what sock I am really swapping, eh? (you know, since I also seem to be in the dark)
And just because, I also wound up more Wollmeise in Turkis and Karneol. This skein has so many of my partners suggested colors in it, maybe this is the one? It's a skein of fall. A Jaywalker perhaps?
I think the suspense is killing me. *giggle* Lucky I have a month or so to narrow my choices. Suggestions encouraged. Thanks knitters!
