With Tropical Storm Barry situated southwest of Tampa, we greet June 1st with much needed rain.
On this, the first day of the hurricane season, my rendition of the "Springtime in Paris" sock has been cast off. I finished the last few stitches sitting and gazing out on a gray sky and much needed precipitation. I had the first sock knit and took sock two on a fabulous trip to Hawaii. Alas, had I read the instructions more closely I would have understood that only one sock was to be knit. My partner was to knit the mate.
Merveilleux, très bon!
The yarn is from the fabulous dyers at Blue Moon Fiber Arts. This is the Downpour color-way. These pair are heading to the press for blocking and then shipped off to Louisiana and onto the waiting feet of my Hurricane Swap partner, Jill. I hope that she enjoys them as much as I enjoyed knitting them.
The pattern , très intelligent, is one that can be worn inside out. The one side represents raindrops while the other resemble many little Eiffel Towers. Très chic
Here is a close up of the pattern. see the little Eiffel Towers? Where can you find this little pattern, you ask? Why, join my favorite KAL "Six-Sox Knitalong". The new pattern was posted today.
By the way, this was my first attempt at "toe-up." Très bon!
Eye Candy Friday
A little segue. I just want to share my favorite summer slurp with you. Limoncello with a splash of cranberry juice. You can find this lemony delight on the cordial shelf of your favorite liquor vendor.
