Color Me Happy . . . with Moss Stitch
Thank you, Lynn-Anne for educating me regarding moss stitch. I'm in love with it; it's a close cousin of seed stitch and both are equally as difficult to achieve if you're a right-hand thrower like I am. However, there's a pleasant rhythm to BOTH of these that I love. I can't share any photos yet, but I am using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. I'd forgotten just how scrumptious it is to work with. It reminded me that I need to finish my Knitty Tempting from last year. I also have 6 more balls of the Cashmerino Aran in an off-white color (I was thinking of a 2nd Tempting with it but might try something different).
Photos will return in my next blog post.
Last weekend, I worked the anniversary sale at Twisted Yarns and I really shouldn't be surprised at how the sock yarn flew out the door! I know it wasn't because I was gushing over the new Cherry Tree Hill Supersock sock yarn or the Trekking XXL. Everybody truly IS knitting socks these days. For the sock yarn stash (which I did mention I would be enhancing this year), I purchased another Trekking XXL (Color #69) and a Burgundy Cherry Tree Hill (and oh yes, I'll go back for the variegated ones I want later).
There has been a lot of progress on the sock-knitting (and re-knitting) front here at Chez Twisted Knitter. Don't you hate photo-less blogs? I DO! If you want to see a cool pair of Trekking socks, click here.
On the Sockapalooza update, I have purchased yarn for my Sock Pal's socks! They should arrive via USPS soon! If I don't totally love the yarn I ordered, then I'll choose something from my sock yarn stash in a color that I think she would enjoy.
