Another One Down .....

Another sock has a partner - it's a pair of ankle socks in the Tofusies yarn that I knitted for Helen ..... although the yarn is splitty but the new Lantern Moon Rosewood dpns that I used are perfect for this yarn - the needles (2.25mm) are so smooth & the ends are really sharp which make the knitting really easy. I started knitting this sock with Brittany & found it difficult to knit as the needles were blunt & not smooth. The right needles do make a world of difference !
I don't mind knitting with this yarn again as the socks turned out really soft & the colors are nice. Hope Helen enjoys wearing it as they are Healthy Socks (ha, ha..)
At long last, I received my books from Amazon .... Victorian Lace, Favourite Socks & More Sensational Knitted Socks .... the books are great & I am still deciding on which patterns to knit - I want to knit a shawl & more socks but I can't cast on another project until I finish my current ones - so I am trying hard to finish off the Hourglass Sweater (half a sleeve to go) & the many other single socks ....
I better go off now & knit & not waste any more time on the computer ........

Your Tofusies socks are so cute! I saw some of the yarn at the fair, but I worried about the splitiness of the yarn. That pattern works so nicely with the subtle striping. I look forward to seeing your Hourglass sweater!

The socks are great!! They are so cute, and the colours are beautiful and they suit the pattern. Good luck with the Hourglass. And there are holes in knitting everywhere!! It's terrible, good luck with the fixing!!
