Lacey Hedera Socks Project 1

These are my latest finished socks. I've used 2 patterns online. Hedera by Cookie A
and Old Shale Two Yarn Sock Pattern for the fold-down lace cuff part. I love how these feel! So soft!
Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Silk - ivory
Size 0 circular needle (Magic Loop technique)
Mods: made the Hedera pattern toe-up, used Cookie's heel from her pattern Baudelaire (which is a toe-up pattern), added a lacey fold-down cuff.
I love how these feel! So soft!

This coming Sunday, I'm going to take two classes from Cookie at my local LYS, Hill Country Weavers. I am so excited! And I'm wearing my new socks!

Blogger Absen-tia

Oh my. Busy is an understatement! We have taken the RV out several times. It gets to rest now until mid-September. As do I. It's lots of fun to live in a tiny house in the woods! We didn't want to come home this last trip - to the Davis Mountains. We got to go the McDonald Observatory, too - twice! We got to see Saturn and it's rings in one of the domed telescopes! Fantastic trip.

The photos and video files are waiting for me to do something with them as they have to be edited. I'll try to get to it soon. (words of doom?)
