knit happens

since i felted girl-child's very favorite pair of socks (i know!) i had no choice but to get another pair on the needles but quick! these little lovelies are trekking yarn in colorway 126. you'd think they'd come up with a better name for this wonderful stripey deliciousness! (thanks cam) any suggestions?

there was some worry they wouldn't fit but i was gently prodded to keep knitting. how could i not keep knitting with a new surprise waiting around the next row? i'm a big fan of the self-striping yarn. until i get to the second sock, that is, and drive myself MAD trying to get the damn things to match! i'm determined this time. insanity ensues.

and i'm also sworn never to wash hand-knits in the machine again. sorry, roo.

That yarn makes me think of Neopolitan ice cream. No wonder you call it delicious.

That is pretty! And you didn't change yarn to make the design?

Hey -- is this the same yarn that I bought down there? I hope so, 'cause I love it. I didn't even thing to ask if it was machine washable. It better be 'cause I DON'T so handwashed socks! They're beautiful Melly!
