Did you get your copy of Cast On in the mail last week? I have another new pattern in the Spring issue that just came out – a pair of socks, called May Day Flowers Socks. look for them on page 16. I am really pleased with how these came out, and I almost didn’t want to mail them off to the magazine- I was so in love with them! I’ll just have to knit myself a pair soon, I guess, yes? 🙂
These are very pretty and feminine, with a picot cast on at the cuff and a lovely lace pattern running down onto the instep. The short row heels and toes use German short rows (one of my new favorite ways to do short rows!) The yarn is A Hundred Ravens Iachos in colorway Rose Tyler, and the yarn was a dream to knit with.
I’m quite pleased with these, and I hope you are too!
PS – I know I’ve been unforgivably quiet – sorry about that! It’s hard when all the things on my needles are secret projects!! 🙂 I do have some more tutorial ideas that I promise I will blog about soon!
