first frogs of my new year
First attempt was Margaritaville and I somehow missed a stitch and tinked a few rows before taking it all off. Second pattern is also Adrienne's and is called Rainbow Over Lahaina. Great patterns and will knit each one of them for sure. The yarn is Regia Amerika Las Vegas (I think) and I won it from our own Destiknit in her blog yarn give away last October. :) Much prettier in person than these pics show. I was so excited to begin knitting the feathery pattern with the peacock colored yarn that I didn't read carefully enough and skipped the first 5 rows before the start of the pattern. No wonder it was so hard to do the ssks and the k2togs! I need to skein it and then wind 2 balls so the yarn will begin at the same place to match the socks. That's the plan. Meanwhile I am going to start a sock for Fred called "Hayrick" by Anne Hanson using yarn I dyed last year with Landscape "saltmarsh" dye. The color is much deeper than this pic shows and hopefully will show up when the finished socks are photographed.
