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!
