Crazy for You

In between working on Celtic Dreams, I have been working on my first sock from my Great Balls of Fire handspun.

I’m still enjoying knitting this yarn, despite the very plain stockinette on US0. I am magic looping it with Knit Picks circulars — my favorite cable on all circular needles now. No ladders, either.

I have a crazy love for this crazy soft sock, despite what I see as the shortcomings of my spinning.

[I like being able to see where I can make advances and learn new things, so seeing what I need to work on in my spinning is a good thing for me.]

But now, back to CD.

    LOVE the sock! Just the right kind of variegation.

    Okay, I was all kinds of confused when this post came up – I just saw your post in the LJ sock_knitters community and then there’s the same sock on my bloglines. I love it and I’ve been enjoying seeing your pictures of the sock in progress, as well as the yarn. It does look like a lot of fun to knit.

    I don’t agree with “despite the very plain stockinette on US0″ – this is beautiful, the stockinette shows off the yarn perfectly. Personally I much prefer to see stockinette socks with multi-hued or variegated yarns. The pattern gets lots in the colors. Plus, absolutely no pooling here. It’s making for the perfect sock in my opinion. And that’s before taking any cold medicine this morning so it MUST be true! :o)

    I think it looks terrific, even in “plain” stockinette! The yarn is gorgeous!
