Starting over...

Socks - what else were you expecting?
(yes, that is supposed to be Plural)

I untangled the yarn last weekend and made a start on this sock - it is impossible to say how dark this yarn is as it really changes with the light and I am sure it will be lighter still once it is washed judging by the colour of my hands after knitting this much.
The yarn is old and appears to be a dark royal blue, just a mystery until it is done really.
The pattern is Davidson Road from the book Knitting Knee Highs by Barb Brown - no one else borrowed it from the library so I got another turn.

This is another pattern from the same book - Czarina's Lace.
More donated yarn though this is not quite as old as the blue one and is definitely a Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn in a soft brown colour.


There has been some reading since last time I showed a book or two and after reading several set locally, I picked something different this week and have started 'Size 12 and ready to rock' by Meg Cabot. 

(see how dark that blue looks in artificial light)

In other knitty news this week I cast off Part 2 of the Reversible Wrap, while I had good intentions of sewing it to part 1 this week I haven't started that job yet - maybe tomorrow? I am over half done with part 3 too, so it should be finished before Summer arrives.

Joining the Yarn Along again.

Happy Yarning.

I love the royal blue yarn you are using and it's a shame it is bleeding while you knit, maybe a vinegar bath when you are done will set the color?

I love that blue colour, shame it's depositing it all over you though! Sounds like it might be lighter by the time to cast off already :) Great idea from Tracey above, will make note of that myself x

Great projects you are working on, I especially love the wrap. Hopefully the sock yarn will quit bleeding once you've washed it, it is a very pretty shade of blue.

I like the stitchings in your previous post. And see you are still making socks. :) One day I may try to crochet some. Knitting and I don't get along at all. Hope you have a great weekend. Tammy
