Sockapalooza ~ Socks #11/2007

13 August 2007
My Sockapalooza pal Holly has received her socks!

*Be sure to check out Holly's pictures as they show the lace pattern better than my photo does*

I started out knitting Wyvern socks, but realised the 'scales' weren't showing too clearly with the colour of the yarn... so I flipped through some books for ideas, and came across "Padded Footlets" in Favorite Socks. A bit of tweaking and designing later, and voila... my first pair of toe-up socks (finally OzKnitter's knitted toe-up socks, I hear some of you exclaim)!

The yarn is Elizabeth 100% Superwash Merino from Live2Knit in the "Smoke" colourway. It's lovely and soft, a dream to knit with (it 'takes' frogging well too).

They fit and Holly loves them, so I'm delighted.

I'm back...

to about 95%, I think. I'm eons (well, maybe more like a month) behind in email and blogging, so I'm hoping to catch up this week *fingers crossed*.

Wow! Ms SocksForMum nominated me as a "Rockin' Girl Blogger"! Thank you Rebecca, it's much appreciated and very exciting.

Big thanks to Meg & Debby for hosting the Tour de France KAL. I had a blast, and I'm looking forward to next year. Thanks ladies!

Congrats to Cadel Evans for a marvellous TdF; such grit and determination to get up those climbs! He's now officially the first Australian cyclist to make it onto the podium (ie finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd) for the Tour de France. I hope he's managed to have a well-earned break!

I have managed to squeeze in some knitting (see next post for details).
