After 2 fairly successful sock swaps (Sockapalooza and Monkey Sock) I’ve decided to join my 3rd sock swap. This one is organized by Lynne and Emily (who just had a baby!) and is named May Day Sock Swap.
This swap is a fairly small swap and is a secret swap so I wont tell you much about my pal’s preferences in case she comes and visits!
I’ve already chosen the yarn for her socks but am still debating on the pattern. The yarn I picked is Schaefer Lola in this gorgeous purple/burgundy colorway.
I’ve cast on for a practice pair of Red Dwarf socks for myself with this gorgeous yarn that is Hand Maiden Casbah in Sangria.
I’m loving how it looks so far and the pattern is super fast and easy. In no time I had 2 repeats done.
The Casbah is a gorgeous yarn to knit with and I’m loving the fact that I can knit it up on 3.25mm. It makes a big difference when you’re used to knitting everything on 2.5mm!
For those wanting some of their own Lola or Casbah, both of them will be available at yarn4socks on the next update on Sunday 24 at 9pm est.
