Introducing Pinky

IMG_4445 IMG_4446

I’m not quite done with the Mother Outlaw socks, but I started another pair.  This is the Merino Lace Socks pattern from Favorite Socks (Rav link).  The yarn is Stitchjones Glam Sock, a delightful blend of superwash merino/silk/nylon/silver fibers (the percentages are 63/20/14/2).  It’s pink and subtly sparkly.  The recipient is my colleague and Sock Summit registration heroine, Meggan (who could also be described as pink and subtly sparkly).

This is one girly sock!

What you see here is the 5 repeats of a 4-round rib pattern (which has some lace at the edges but also a large panel of 5x2 rib) plus 1 12-round repeat of the main pattern.  I’m showing two views because they look so different.  I really like the second photo – those lacy cable-y bits are squooshy and pleasing.  The jury is still out on the pattern below the rib part.  It’s only one repeat so I don’t think you can see if very well yet.

This is chart knitting, so it’s NOT an office sock.  I’ll have to start another one soon.  Perhaps a pair for my favorite 3-year-old girl…

Nice -- I'm assuming your choice was approved? I totally dig the idea of something being subtly sparkly. We should all aspire to that.

Wow, that is PINKalicious! As soon as I saw it, I was hoping you hadn't had a change of heart based on our conversation the other night=:)

They look great!
