I do believe that these are the prettiest socks I've ever knit. This is also the first project that got stares from "outsiders" - I was at the toe, so I took this with us to the orthodontist today. The doc stopped and commented, 3 nurses stopped and commented, and 4 other nurses stood in a huddle and pointed and stared. :giggle:
Pattern is a mash-up of "The Green Isle" from "Knitted Socks Around the World" (foot and instep) and "Fibonacci" from "Op-Art Socks" (sole pattern). The yarn is Franklin Natural that Herself and I dyed (green) and natural....and it's.....it's prettier than I had imagined.
I was going for a nice, dark Emerald...not this lovely Kelly. This, though - THIS is perfect. The pattern and the yarn and the colors work beautiful. :sigh: I LOVE it when things work out like this!
In other news: Chloe is NOT as bad as we had thought. I dug out the crate (she barely fits) and locked her up Wednesday when we had to leave for most of the day. The house? Was *destroyed* - and Ms. Chloe was still locked up nice and tight in the crate. We think Tigger is up to her old antics - and we've been blaming the wrong dog. Yes, I've apologized profusely to Chloe....Tigger's in the doghouse now. :lol:
Shabbat Shalom! I have to cast on another sock!
