Here are pictures of the much loved Elfine's socks.
Toe up & lacey they are lovely and so fast. As are all of Anna's sock patterns. Yahaira & I think it may be voodoo in her patterns. How else could they be so fast? Either way I'm not knockin it.
I used my Knit picks "dye your own" sock yarn & 4 packs of strawberry kool aid for the color. I'm pretty surprised by the vivid color (kool aid tends to be a bit flat).
There is nothing I don't love about these socks. While lace is difficult to memorize (for me at least) these follow such a simple pattern that it becomes evident where the stitches go.
Anna has my vote for the best sock patterns. Mind you I've only knit 3 pairs but 2 have been hers & I love them! Love them I say!
Thanks for all the comments about our buttons. It is a really cool opportunity. Hopefully they will sell like hotcakes!
Don't forget tomorrow!
Flash your stash
Go forth & flash ladies!!
BTW, are you going to Indie Craft Experience? The Boyfriend might be home in ATL then so I might plan a trip down then so I can check ICE out some. This is all very iffy. But still, sounds like a lot of fun.
I dyed the KnitPicks dye-it-yourself yarn you sent with some of the KoolAid you also sent, and I didn't get a vibrant color... but I did get a lovely light green that reminds me of a childhood Otter Pop!
