Sometimes finding things to blog about is difficult.  I frequently stress out about what to post – did I already post it?  Does it sound whiny (see?  I actually am aware of how whiny I can be)?  Is it interesting ?  Do I sound too obsessive?  Sometimes the whole post thing is hard….but this week – I actually have so much content that I am going to spread it out into a few posts.  So tonight…how about socks?

I finished the Ariann socks last week – and I have to say that I think they are pretty cute.


Pattern:  My own, based on Ariann
Yarn:  Lorna’s Laces, Black Purl colorway
Needle:  US 1, DPN
Started:  4/14/07, Finished:  5/3/07

I’ve had this yarn for a while, but was hesitant to use it because I didn’t like how it pooled in every sock I had seen made with it.  But this pattern really broke that up, and I only had a tiny bit of pooling around the heel.    I love the pattern  – and although it wasn’t as good as making another Ariann, it did let me enjoy the pattern for a little bit more.

This was also the first pair of socks I’ve made with Lorna’s Laces – I love this yarn!  I will be buying more.  I loved the feel of it, the look of it.  I recommend it highly.


They aren’t for me, but are a present for someone – so they are in the mail, and hopefully will arrive tomorrow.  Happy Friday!

    Oh my gosh, those socks are gorgeous!!! I am going to check out that pattern right now.

    (thanks for commenting on my blog. I would have emailed you directly, but I can’t. I much prefer the comments at wordpress so that you can email the commenter directly, but I don’t want the hassle of moving my blog now. )

    Pretty Socks! I understand about the whole not knowing what to post thing. I haven’t posted in almost a week because I haven’t had any pretty pictures to put up…and I haven’t finished any knitting stuff.

    Some days I blog easily & others it’s like pulling teeth but I’m enjoying the sense of community & being part of it instead of an observer.
