I think it's worn off now - meaning the recent obsession with a shiny new technique - although it was fun whilst it lasted......
I am once again knitting something other than swatches, and I've finished the first Leafling sock.
The colours are now swirling in a very satisfactory way. However I can't seem to get the toe quite right here. The pattern gives an ordinary symmetrical toe, or alternatively there is an option for left and right shaped toes. I have, as you can see, tried the one for the right foot. I don't really like the way it looks but I must admit that it does fit nicely - however I don't know if I'll keep it this way. I can't somehow see myself checking which sock is which before I put them on, first thing in the morning.
I do quite like this sock construction. It is worked top down with a gusset above the heel, which makes for a good comfortable fit for those of us with a high instep.
I still can't get the energy to pick up Flow again. If I'm not careful it will end up lurking unfinished, and that would be a pity, because I think it is an excellent pattern.
I have, however, been busy. I have gone through the whole of the stash - all of it. This was quite a task. And predictably I now have a stack of things that I no longer want/need/love - but that someone else might like. Because they are all nice things.
There is some Peruvian Collection Baby Silk;
some Peruvian Connection Baby Cashmere;
some Peruvian Connection Quechua - which is a DK weight alpaca/tencel blend, very soft and silky;
some silver Goldfingering (which sounds like a contradiction in terms, doesn't it?);
a skein of Helen's Lace;
a skein of Lucy Neatby's Celestial Merino;
and finally two different shades of Regia's Cotton India Color sock yarn.
This is all on my Ravelry destash page at the moment, and there is more to come.
