'Red' is for my sockapalooza pal and I am quite pleased thus far on the progress. The pattern is 'Uptown Boot' Socks from the Favorite Socks book by Interweave Knits. The yarn is Lorna's Lace in Red Rover. My pal likes jewel tones and red and purple are two of her favorite so I thought this color would fulfill all possibilities - what do you think? After this picture was taken I turned the heel (not my favorite - but it looks ok - Ann Budd's 'Undulating Rib Socks' have a cleaner turned heel I think) and picked up the gusset stitches. I am headed in the right direction and time frame for finishing up for my August 2nd send off. The cable pattern is subtle, but intriguing and I think it flows very nicely with these colors. I do hope my pal will like it.
This may seem like it was easy to achieve, but getting this sucker on was a pain. The last time I did this I broke a needle so I was extra careful this time. Wanted to get an action shot of sorts!
