FO: Switcheroo

It was a long weekend here in Canada, so I took the extra time to push through and finish the Switcheroo socks.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the pattern, but for some reason I just didn’t enjoy knitting it. It does create a pretty bit of eyelet lace that works well with busy yarns.

And the yarn is pretty spectacular, if I do say so myself. It’s our Twinkle Cat (sadly you can’t see the sparkle in these pics), in a colourway I called Briar Patch. As you can see, it’s a wonderful mix of dusty rose, mauve and brown. I have another skein and I’m so glad… these socks are destined for the gift box, but I still have yarn to make something for myself!

    These are sure a very pretty pair of socks!!! I’m glad you have another skein to make a pair (of a different design!) for yourself!

    What a beautiful pair of socks! Even without seeing the sparkles, the yarn is just awesome. I hope the recipient of these is a very special person.

    Beautiful! I love those colors together, and I can imagine they’re even better with sparkles šŸ™‚ Whoever gets these is a lucky duck!
