I've been doing some secret knitting and now that my friend Nicole has them, I can show you the socks I've been working on.
It is a cool bubble pattern in her favorite color, orange (with a little yellow thrown in for good measure). Aren't they pretty? They will certainly brighten up a cold, dreary winter's day. The yarn is a blend of silk, wool and bamboo that was so easy to knit with and they are very soft and squishy.
I loved the pattern so much, that I'm working on a pair for me. The colorway is called Watermelon and you can't really tell from the picture, but it has little black spots in it to resemble the seeds. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I have enough yarn to finish them as this pattern eats it up quickly.
I have finished one other project, the mitered squares scarf. The picture is kind of washed out, the colors are dark and fall like and I can't wait to wear it.
