maybe? (For those that read Yarn Harlot, she can make a pair of socks in a day! A week is lightening speed for me!)
Saturday, I was leaving the shop and noticed that the display of the Maxime Print sock yarn had not really changed since is was created a few weeks ago. (Dear yarn maker: It would really help if you put a picture of the yarn knit up on the ball band so we can see how it is going to look!) I didn't have any socks on my sock needles so I took a ball home to make a sock to show the design.
I started Sunday afternoon and knit one sock 'magic loop' (my new favourite thing) and by the end of Masterpiece Theatre I had knit past the heel turn!
I started the second sock, matching the stripes from the centre of the ball, like the first one, only to discover that the design is now running in the opposite direction. (Lesson learned! Yarn companies wind balls in both directions!) I frogged the knitting and began again.
Tomorrow is Maplefest so there is not much chance of working on them very much this weekend.
I will keep you posted.
Today (Friday) and tommorow (Maplefest Saturday) all sale yarn is now buy 3 get the 4th free!
