On the Needles – November 9, 2012

This is what’s on my needles.  This is the Opal yarn.  Some had requested that I include the ball of yarn in the photos so I did.  I aim to please!  🙂

Not a whole lot of progress on these, in fact, I don’t think I’ve touched them since last week, but I have a good reason.  Months ago I made the first sock using the Zora pattern.  The yarn is Madelinetosh Sock and the color is Iris.  It’s . . well, it’s the color of a purple iris.  I’m not sure any of my photos are showing the color accurately.  But, I figured it was time I started that second sock.  I started it and I knitted and knitted and finished the leg, then the heel, then the foot and now . . I have a pair of finished socks!

The cables are so pretty.  I tried to get a better photo of them but the color is way off.

That’s the 11th pair I’ve finished this year.

So . . what’s on your needles?

    Judy, when you knitted the Zora, did you use the same amount of stitches that the pattern called for or did you increase them for a larger size?

    Judy, I love watching your socks! I really like those purple iris. I have some growing here and know how beautiful that color is. The cables are great! Looking forward to seeing how the stripes go in the first pair.
