As mentioned yesterday, the lavender Woodland Walk socks were also for Mom for Mama’s Day.
I finished them up just before the weekend. They are a really fast sock knit if you stick to it. As the pattern is just across 16 stitches, the majority of the knit is stockinette – easy, peasy. The lace pattern has a nice flow, and once you get going, it’s easy to read, meaning it’s easy to pick up and put down. That said, it’s one of those patterns where you want to work to the end of the char. It all combines to make some speedy knitting. This pair took me just two weeks of not-quite-so-steady knitting (Minerva and the Barnyard sweater were worked on as well)
As soon as I saw the yarn on the Knitpicks site, I knew it was the perfect colour for Mom. As mentioned (and a lot of you noted this is a common problem with tweed), lots of those little nubbies fall off during the knitting. And I’m sure many more will with the wearing. But what I really love about this yarn….
Is the subtle heathering. I almost wish they made a yarn like it, without the nubs. It’s so pretty.
And now with this pair done…. I need to start another!
