Lime n Violet socks

Lime & Violet socks!

I started these several months ago however they were relegated to the bottom of the To Be Knit pile after I messed up the heel. I finally got round to undoing and redoing the heel about a week ago, and finished them off today.

Pattern: My own devising, with minicable stripe down the side.
Yarn: Lisa Souza's Lime n Violet (of course)

I'm counting 220 yards towards my Sock Marathon total, as I think 2/3 of them were knit since Jan 1st... Although this is my second pair of socks finished for the marathon, I suspect my sprint start will quickly be overtaken as I start having to knit entire pairs of socks... :)

Stash Acquisition.

Yarn day! Today not only arrived the first installment of the Fyberspates sock club (my first alpaca! Lush) but my long overdue Christmas present, 2.5kg of soysilk sock weight yarn.

My brain can't even begin to calculate the yardage on this lot. Maybe later :P

Crazy crochet scarf. Why yes, I am trying to use up novelty yarn.

This thing turned out in excess of 7 feet long. Terrifying.

My starting picture for the Lime & Violet sock marathon - a comparatively meagre 4.36 miles in total.

But I'm still waiting for my Christmas sock yarn (hmph) and my first sock club package from Fyberspates...

Finished on New Years Day! Made as per the pattern, but with 1x1 ribbing instead of 2x2 (it's still a bit loose). Otherwise I love this yarn and pattern :)
