As I Said...

Socks make boring blogging, except when you actually have a finished pair to show off:

And the close-up of the pattern:

Pattern: Stansfield 14 from More Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Brown Sheep Wildfoote in Sonatina
Needles: 0s

So, this is my second pair for Summer of Socks. I'm just a wee bit behind on my pair a week goal, but that's okay. I'm using up some sock yarn, so I won't feel quite so guilty next time I purchase more. I do plan to make a few more pair before succumbing to the desire to buy more. If I was really good, I'd even wait until I go on another yarn crawl in September up to Knitter's Day Out, but that is September. And I will be a Groupie with my next Loopy Ewe order. Too tempting.

Delicious colours! They remind me of sherbert. I just love that stitch pattern too.

I found a specific purpose for the Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace (silk/wool) "Vera" yarn--it's going to be the Scherezade stole from Melanie of the Mystery Stoles. However, I'm not letting myself start it yet (even though I finished the Emerald Isle shawl, aka "The Green Thing"). Why? I decided to try to finish my Mediterranean Lace shawl first. The one I started in July 2005 and keep letting linger. I found it and got to work again. I now have nearly 5 left-side-panel lace repeats done. Seven more to go there, then 12 on the right, then the entire size-0-Addi picked up edging. Oy. Too bad it won't be done in time to wear it to my cousin's wedding on 8/4.

Lovely socks! I have that yarn, but mine looks pinker. You chose a great pattern stitch for it.
