The Koigu sock as of this morning, not quite done turning that heel.
The Koigu sock as of this evening. Another 6" of 4x2 ribbing to go. Zzzzzzzzz and then that second sock.
I'm very pleased with what I am getting now, and glad I ripped it out all those times. I like how the colors are working out. Koigu is marvelous stuff. I guess it really is worthwhile to get it JUST right.
I'm thinking that I want to do a sweater, I've been swatching various yarns and looking at patterns. So far, nothing has really leaped out at me and yelled, "I am the PERFECT FIRST SWEATER!" so we'll see. I'd like to do just a simple V neck or cardi. Nothing fancy. I just want to get the basics of construction down on something simple, but I also want it to be flattering. I guess the right pattern will jump out at me sooner or later and until then, well, there's always that second sock.
