(I've made a stab at translating the verse over at The House of Wool Repute)
Sweet, huh... I've been reading a lot of Andrè Bjerke to Marie lately. This is from my own copy of Moro Vers, that I got when I was 5 years old. There is a lot of fun stuff in there.
My Madder ribbes socks are done. My first time working with Lorna's Laces. I really like these. I'm curious as to how the LL will wear with time.
I've knit very few toe-up socks. I prefer top-down for socks as well as a lot of other things. After knitting these socks I still have a lot of yarn left over. 47 grams to be precise. I'm seriously thinking about starting to knit all my socks with a provisional cast on and going straight into the pattern, skipping the ribbing. Then when the toe is closed I can go back and knit the ribbing upwards until the yarn is out. There are just too much sock yarn leftovers in my oddball box! I think this particular Lorna's will have to be paired with some other nice yarn to become a Surprice Jacket.
Coming soon to this blog: Cotton stuff!
