There’s nothing like a trip to the beach on the first official day of Winter! I’m in the middle of a very quiet week after last weeks hectic hustle and bustle, so KB and I decided to go for a drive out to Titahi Bay for a bit of beach energy….
We also had very important business to attend to… the photographing of my latest pair of socks! A few posts ago, I showed you the socks I had made with Knitsch Yarn which were soooooo fun and fabulous, definitely my favourite socks ever! I have to say, I’ve been wearing them regularly and they get better with every wash and wear. I loved those socks so much, I needed to start another pair immediately, so chose the Priscilla colourway I had waiting patiently in my wardrobe stash and got to work!
I love these even more than the last socks, they are amazing. I’ve named them the “different but the same” socks, and you’ll see why! I’m not sure what happened with my tension, but the result is kind of fun and only a small part of me (the anal retentive part) wishes they were the same, the rest of me loves them just as they are.
How AWESOME are these colours!!!???
Different, but the same!
So… as usual, the sock-stats:
Pattern: Yarn Harlot’s easy sock pattern from Knitting Rules! (again!)
Sock Satisfaction Rating: 9/10… I would give them 10, but that little control freak inside me needs to deduct a point for the lack of matchingness… otherwise they would be 11′s for sure.
So there we have it, my new favourite pair of socks! I have one colourway left in my wardrobe stash so need to top up my Knitsch stockpile stat!
The cowl is coming along nicely, and I’m looking forward to showing you all the progress and discussing the intricacies of knitting lace! But that’s a story for another day….
Wishing you much love today,
and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are… thank you for popping in to enable and encourage my obsessions! it is much appreciated!
Lots and lots of love, from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
