give me some wood and i'll build you a cabinet*
Pattern: 'Clandestine' by cookie a
Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label Fingering Wt. in 'Peacock'
This week, I finished knitting this pattern for the second time since it's an option in the socks class I'm teaching and the first pair I made live in Ontario and weren't available as demos. This time I used the Knitty pattern version, and it's written differently from the Knit.Sock.Love version I used previously. I much prefer the Knitty one. The charts are less complicated and I generally found it read more clearly.
Tanis's yarns are wonderful, and this colour is striking in real life. The overcast day won't let me capture it well. I love my new sock blockers, too. I feel so mature, owning sock blockers.
Also, ongoing dyeing. Some of my current favourites:
( a new heavy lace / light fingering yarn I'm trying that's fanTAStic. great yardage, too)
Hope you have a good week.
