It's surprisingly gray and gloomy outside for June, so I've been in the mood to sit inside and knit. Part of it has to do with this cold I'm getting over, but part of it is just a strangely autumnal feeling that's entirely wrong for the season.
That said, I have finished a pair of happy pink girl socks. I loved knitting these, the pattern was easy to memorize and I love the yarn. Bamboo and Nylon, and it has a beautiful sheen to it.
The gory details:
Pattern: Rayne's Socks (ravelry link, sorry - it's where I found the pattern)
Yarn: On Your Toes Bamboo (love, love, love!)
Needles: US #0
Comments: Let me say again how much I loved working with this yarn. It didn't hurt my hands, and it's shiny and has great stitch definition. I'll definitely use it again. And the pattern is so pretty yet so easy to memorize... the perfect little girl socks. 4 pattern repeats for the shaft and 4 pattern repeats for the foot should fit a little girl with a 4-5" foot perfectly.
And here's the prerequisite cat shot. Merlin in a box, Morgana washing his head.
There was a time when they'd both fit in one box. Now... not so much.
