New Socks on the Needles
Autumn is a good time to indulge myself in the beautiful colors of the season. I simply love fall in all its majesty. Here, we have some pumpkin colored yarn that I purchased for a sweater, but it was not to be. All that yammy color was just too much.
I made up the pattern myself. That's to say, I didn't use a pattern from Ravelry, or any book or website. I'm sure someone out there has made socks with a diamond pattern on them, so they're probably not 'original' in the truest sense of the word. I used graph paper to sketch out the design I wanted, and began knitting using basic sock measurements. We'll see how they come out.
The diamonds are subtle, I know, but I didn't want anything too fussy with this very bold and stripey color. I hope to finish them before Halloween.
I'm loving my little sock project bag.
