Knittingdodo’s knit rants

Yarn, Needles, An Extinct Bird……What More Do You Need?

FO: Twisted Flower Socks March 29, 2011

Last January brought with it two things: My true love for Cookie A patterns, and my discovery of knitting for yarn. Both discoveries came about with these socks. I was trolling Ravelry, as I tend to do and I saw someone was offering a skein of sock yarn in return for sock knitting services.

And, I fell in love with the arrangement. You’ll see, once I get all my FO’s posted, that I’ve been doing a lot of knitting for yarn over the past year or so. :o)

But back to the one that started it all. I can’t really recall if she picked out the pattern or I did, but it’s an awesome one. As I stated earlier, it was the pattern that helped me discover my true love with Cookie A. I had made 2 other of Cookie’s patterns before and had enjoyed them, but this one blew my mind. I mean, twisted stitches and single stitch cables. I was in heaven. ;o)

And, yum. The Jitterbug was nice and plush and the color was fantastic. Just about the perfect purple. My only complaint about this yarn was that the skein was a little light on yardage. But, as you may know, they have changed their put up since I made these and the new put up is more generous.

Mods: Because of the low yardage, I went ahead and only did one pattern repeat on the leg. I personally think the socks look better that way, too. :o)
