Ice Cream...Neapolitan to be exact :)
Vesper Sock Yarn a gift from Cristi when we met for the first time..yeah..like over a year ago. I likey marinating the sock yarn stash :) This was my favorite ice cream growing up. They didn't have all the fancy ice creams like they do now. Um..I remember when cookies and cream came out during freshman year at college...yeah, the freshman 15 plus LOL!
Started August 07-Finished March 08
Generic 64 stitch Stockinette Stitch socks
US 2 Inox, Magic Loop
Short row heels
Stretchy bind off, which BTW, worked much better this time than the first time. From Weebleknits, using Denise's version from Socknitters (hey just giving credit links). This is the best one I've used.
Ahhhh self-stripey goodness! Need to cast on another SS pair, wonder what color I'll use...seriously? hehe
Heels didn't match, but it's ok with me! Don't wait so long between heels! I was trying to remember how many wrapped stitches. I did ok, and they fit perfectly...so warm and soft. These were my in the car, doc. appointment, etc. socks, but I just wanted a WIP done..YKWIM! I'm proud of myself, as Saturday, I stopped sewing and just worked on sock 2 which I had just finished the SRH. I finally could knit without looking and finished them last nite, and did the bindoff this morning. A miracle for me! Woot!
I've heard a lot of different opinions of Vesper sock yarn. This is from a while back and it isn't superwash, just 100% merino, no nylon either, but I love them. So warm and cuddly on a rainy day like today. Hehe..yeah for the rain, will make weeding this week soooo much easier! :)
