Cosby Socks

It's busy season at work, but I had to stop by and share them, my finished Cosby socks. Thanks so much for noticing the resemblance! Mr. Batty and I couldn't quite place where we'd seen the pattern before, we figured it was retro and strangely familiar, but why? And then, you told me! Knitters know everything.

Pattern: Stripe Tease
Yarn: Cheap German sock yarn from Lidl
Needles: US #0
Size: 60 stitches total
Comments: Fun pattern, couldn't stop knitting it. I highly recommend the pattern. As for the yarn... there's a reason it was cheap.

SIP Sunday

It's Sunday, the perfect day for socks and sweaters in progress. I have been suffering from startitis, so I will restrict myself to projects I've worked on this weekend. Remember the ugly sock? It... hasn't turned out as swan-like as I would have liked. It looks more unusual than attractive. I almost didn't knit a second sock. But that would be cruel. Being an ugly sock is bad enough. Being an ugly sock that's all alone in the world would be horrible.

Not yet recognizable as much of anything is the neck of Rosamund's Cardigan. I said I'd be knitting sweaters in 2012. See? I am.

One of my Blathnat socks now has a heel. I'm loving the bright green. It's slightly variegated, just the tiniest bit. Very pretty yarn. Very pretty pattern.

There are several other socks in progress, at least one other sweater, and I've been eyeing some yarn/pattern combos for caston potential. Startitis... I've got it bad.
