Latvian Dances

p10105101

I finished the Latvian socks last night.  The pattern was almost perfect, considering all the charts that came with it.  I would recommend Red Bird to anyone.  The pattern did not have the two colors on the toes or bottom of the heel.  That was my doing.   These socks took less time to make than my red socks.  The increases and decreases in the red socks slowed me down.  Knowing how to hold yarn in either hand made these go fast and I am very happy with them. 

I’ve started another pair of socks.  The color is not to my liking, but the yarn feels wonderful.  The directions are a little strange.  The writer did not use standard abbreviations and some of the explanations are not well thought out. Perhaps, they were never proof read by an impartial subject.  I would probably drop this club and just get Red Bird more often, but they always send such great yarn.  What do I do?

We had a bit of snow this afternoon.  It was gone in a couple of hours.  But it certainly was pretty to look at while it lasted.

    Oh my goodness! It’s hard to tell which is more beautiful–your pair of socks or your view! I would love to learn to knit socks like that, but I’m such a novice that I don’t know anything about Fair Isle (is that what it’s called? How it’s spelled?), except that it’s beautimous!

    Best wishes on your new project!

    Those are my favorite socks so far! They are so good looking! Your view is gorgeous! I do feel sorry for your plants though. I hope they did not suffer.
