Burnt Socks are done.


So here is the shot of them all done!
And here is a shot of the biggest dam cone of SWS by PAtons that I have ever seen, let alone aquired!! I got it last month from a gal on Ravelry!! Wow, wine glass for scale gals!

Seriously, I want to live next to this knit shop! Dang! I snatched it up for a great price, so PM me if you want to know who I got it from on so you can see what else she has. I can't wait to make a Lady E inspired shawl for my mom out of it. First I have to learn how to enterlac, so I will be trying out a Quant from Knitty. Wish me luck!

You go Girlfriend! And when you figure out how to Interlac you'll have to teach Julia and I! XD I wanna make a pair of those interlac knee-high socks -- probably the same ones as Jules! XD

Wow, that cone is amazing. Only for the hard-core knitter, lol.

I tried learned Entrelac by knitting Quant over the holidays, and found it was a great pattern to get the hang of it, and give some instant knitting gratification. It definitely looks way harder than it actually is. I can't wait to see how that colourway knits up in the entrelac!
