One down...

... and one to go.

The first Broadripple Sock started on Friday morning is now finished. I've given up on the cotton one, and frogged it. So 3 skeins of Pattons Grace are up for swaps if anyone's interested and likes knitting in cotton.

Here's pics (please excuse the somewhat awkward proportion and the unshaved leg!):

Very fun pattern to knit, a lot easier thanit looks, and I love the lace effect. Plus, unlike the previous blue sock (which had a too-short heel flap and a too-short foot), this one fits me really nicely. I'm hoping the stretchy yarn will mean that it fits Terry as well.

Now on to knit its partner...

It looks fantastic! I've got to start knitting something other than the easy peasy basic sock. Now I think you are influencing me LOL. Well done!

Very nice sock! Can't wait to see the other one, it's such a great pattern and your colors are lovely.

Also, you just might be getting a visit from your local postal worker sometime in the next week or two, so be on the lookout :)


Your Knitty SP!

I started my first sock yesterday. I wanted to do Broadripple, but I forgot to bring the pattern with me to the yarn store. I'm just doing a basic sock in Plymouth Sockatta. So far, I'm really enjoying it.

So........are they comfortable????
(You could really create a fashion statement if you wear only the one......and don't shave!)

Love and Hugs,
