Finally one nearly done


Bear with me as this is my first post to Sockapalooza 4. I would normally just go to the pligg and attach my website as a link, but my site is not just about my knitting but that of a couple friends so I don't feel comfortable putting them out there on the pligg without permission. So my first post will be here on the Sockapalooza 4 website. Hopefully people are still checking it out. I originally bought Reynolds Sea Wool in Pale Pink to knit socks from the newest IK by Veronik Avery. But after some work and some thinking I determined my first knee highs should not be for someone who I have limited measurements on. So, on to a computer search and I ended up with the Snicket Socks from MagKnits. I briefly thought I would jump on the Monkey Bandwagon but thought the cabling would show off the delicate yarn better. I am really liking the results and hope my pal likes them too! I hope to finish them completely in the next week or two as I have summer term coming up next week and expect to be too busy to get much knitting done! Fingers crossed that I can stay on schedule.

I think the Snicket sock is a great choice! I love that color :) You could put a link on the Pligg back to this post-- I'm sure that would be fine.
