One down, one more to go!
Marlene Sock by Cookie A, Knit 1 Fall/Winter 2008
I loved this design the moment I saw it in this magazine, and waited patiently for the right yarn in the right colour to come along. I settled on Naturally “Waikiwi” 4ply, a blend of 55% NZ Merino/20% Nylon/15%Alpaca/10%Possum. It is gorgeous – soft and warm and perfect for socks – I really recommend it. Unfortunately the colour range is a bit restricted and masculine, but they do have one of my favourite colours – steel blue, which is shade 404.
I started these way back in March, so you can tell I haven’t been knitting much lately. Most of the knitting has been done at my boy’s swimming lessons, this being my ‘grab and go’ project. If I get cracking I might have the second one done before winter ends!
