Lacy chevrons.

Another pair of socks from my enormous sock yarn stash
Summer Chevron Socks:
Summer Chevron Socks
Started: May 18th
Finished: June 11th
Pattern: My own, using a stitch pattern from 200 Ripple Stitches by Jan Eaton. This is the chevron pattern -
Row 1: k1, yo, k3, sl1 k2tog psso, k3, yo* repeat.
Row 2: Knit.
I cast on 60 stitches and did 5 rows of garter stitch.
The heel is a normal heelflap.
Yarn: Online Supersocke 100 in Holiday which I bought in Toronto last September.
Needles: 2.5mm
Comments: A quick knit, I think the second sock only took about 3 days in total. The pattern is really easy and it works really well with the self-striping yarn. They are lovely and colourful and summery, which is exactly what I wanted!

And now for something completely different.... I have chosen my next lace project...
This is Muir from Knitty in pink Eva 2ply Posh Yarn. I'm just over 1 repeat in and wondering if I can finish it before a wedding on the 20th July. Here is a close up of the pattern.

My sock radar is up, what with Summer of Socks about to start, and these fit the bill exactly, bright, summery socks. Muir is also looking beautiful.

Wonderful socks! and then there was Muir... a favourite of mine. It's a lovely pattern that (in my experience) you really look forward to knitting. Looking forward to seeing progress!
