|Alcaucil Sock: Tough to Photograph!|
I was randomly selected to win this skein of sock in one of my favorite colors, #805 Alcaucil - apparently, I properly tagged and classified all of my Stockpile projects. At last, my anal-retentiveness and ability to follow directions have been rewarded!
Heliotrope Stockings when I re-release this pattern in January...which reminds me: if you want to knit this pattern in the next couple of months, I recommend you purchase it from The Sanguine Gryphon this week. They are in the process of winding down operations, and come Dec. 24th (or thereabouts), this pattern will be out of print until I can reformat & re-knit a model in yarn that is actually available - my estimated release date is mid-January. Consider this your warning!
My Secret Santa from the Sweatshop of Love holiday party gifted me these lovely skeins of Worsted in #98 Tuareg and #507 Pigeon, and I'm pretty certain I'll be using them to make Here and There, an adorably stripey cabled hat by Veera Välimäki. It's a rare day when I decide to knit a pattern in the same colors as the model shown, but there's something about this color combo that really grabs me.
