Guess what arrived in the mail today?
Gorgeous, gorgeous sock yarn. Kara and I both ordered from Sundara Yarn which is a brand new yarn company selling amazing hand-dyed yarn. Plus it is run by one woman. She is crazy talented and has beautiful yarn. We each got two skeins of the most beautiful colorway cherry blossom and it arrived super fast. I am in love with this stuff. I don’t know yet what I will use it for but I am excited to figure it out. I think I am going through a sock phase. Who knew knitting socks was so fun? I am loving my Orchid socks. I am on the second one and will hopefully be done this weekend. I have learned a lot about knitting socks from this project so I will share all and show how they turned out as soon as I am done.
In the meantime, I also started the Deep-V Argyle Vest. Here is my start:
I settled on the gauge after several tries swatching. I decided I liked the way it looked knitted up on 4’s best so I am working out all the math to knit it with that gauge. The most difficult part is that I have a shorter row gauge and so re-working all the rows makes my head hurt�??but I think I have it figured out. I am enjoying the pattern so far, it is easy to remember and fun to watch grow. I am glad I learned to knit with a color in each hand when doing my Norwegian stockings because it is making this a lot easier to do. Anyway, I am excited to continue but very nervous about the concept of steeking. Even the word sounds hard doesn’t it?
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to everyone!
