Happy Spring ? March 21, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — knottyk @ 12:29 am

It’s the first day of spring, and the day has gone from overcast to brightly sunny to very windy and overcast to hailing to overcast again. As my husband was trying to be witty: “Hail Spring…” Here was the start of a sock in Fortissima Cotton Color, or something like that. It’s Fortissima’s cotton/wool blend. I bought it because it I thought it would have more lavender in it and stripe slightly differently.
Umm, no, apparently not. Lavender to grey with blue flecks to grey to charcoal to grey with blue flecks to grey to lavender… you get the idea. Had I been able to discern the distinction between the stripes better, I may have kept going. But sometimes it’s better to frog.
Much better as baby socks, loosely based on Ann Budd’s “Better than baby booties” socks. And seeing as there are babies due all over the place, not a moment too soon.

    I think it does pattern much better as a baby sock.
