For your viewing pleasure....

Another pair of finished socks!

These are the socks that I've had sitting at my desk at work. When the calls and projects were slow I'd work on these and they were perfect for picking up and putting down at a moment's notice. The yarn is Lana's yarn, the one she's using to make her Clapotis and the one that inspired me. To be honest, I can only remember that the yarn brand is Sinfonia and that it's 100% cotton. Beyond that, I know that the color changes kept my attention and it was a quick knit on size 3 needles.
Details: Pattern: Generic cuff down 3x1 rib with round toe Yarn: Sinfonia, 100% cotton Needles: Size 3US dpns, Takumi Date Started: I have no clue, but probably about 5 weeks ago. Date Finished: June 29, 2006

It is very fitting that on a day I finished a project that a KnitPicks order arrives with just a little more yarn to replace it. 2 skeins of Sinfonia out of the stash... 10 skeins of Shine Worsted go back in. I'll be using this Green Apple yarn to make a summer top for myself. I think the green is so cheery, though it's hard to see in the fading light of this picture.
I also purchased a pair of their KnitPicks dpns in a size 1 to see how I like them. Lana was sweet enough to give me a brand new set of Susan Bates size 1 dpns that she had never used and I can't wait to compare the two! I guess that means I'll be casting on for more socks!

Gorgeous socks:)

LOL I do the same... I have always a sock on the go that is knitted on when the system has a breakdown. It has become a point of hilarity in the office that as soon as I pick up the sock the system will get unstuck hahaha

Your KSKS pal

Can't wait to see the top you're making - Shine is great to work with! Cute socks, let me know if they get baggy after wearing. I'm always scared of cotton socks for that reason.

I also can't wait to see the top! The socks are too cute--love those colors.

I can't wait to see how you like the dpns. I have some on the way and I can't wait.

The socks look great. I can't wait to hear what you think of the Knit Picks needles. I only just heard they were making them. Their circular interchangeables got a great review from Knitters Review just the other day.

Very cute socks, I'll have to look for Sinfonia since I hadn't heard of that one before. I will be waiting to see how you like the KP DPNs, I like a shorter DPN for knitting socks and sounds like these may be the ones.
