Socking It To Me

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still quite excited to be a part of Sockapalooza 4, but dang, the whole thing about choosing yarn and pattern is really sockin’ it to me! I finished knitting my “test” sock in the Lilac pattern today. I love it. So, I keep second guessing myself. Is it too holey? Or not? Sigh. I’m not sure. On the yarn side, I love, love, love the Lorna’s Laces in the new Red Rover colorway, but, yes, there it is, the but….I don’t think it will do for my pal’s preference for “light or bright and strong colors”. It reminds me endlessly of fall. Deep russets mixed with a flash of bright red, mixed with some browns, and possibly purples. Gorgeous. But not bright or light. Not “true” color, which is what I interpret some of her other comments to mean. So, several patterns and yarns later, still no definitive winners. I gotta get some answers soon or I’ll be sweating the deadline, which is sooooo not the plan!


  1. I know exaclty what you mean, I had a hard time choosing the yarn for you too but I think I found the perfect one. Now as to the parttern…

  2. I’m sure your pal will be thrilled if you fulfill most but not all of her desires, remember she’s another knitter & nobody appreciates being knit for more than we do!
