Thanks Liz (from the comments). I have another pair on the go now.
These are the Waffle socks from the Need A Sock? Book . This is one of the variations based on the Basic Rib sock. It's easy to knit and a lovely texture. These are for my husband so they'll take a while to finish but I'm loving the colour so no problem hanging out with them for as long as it takes.

A couple of other projects are shaping up.

I'm teaching a Lace class in April at the Simcoe County Museum through SCACA. The class isn't up on their website yet. I've got the chart done and am just getting the last bit of writing done while I knit this second one.

And still the book work continues. Writing, editing and knitting of course.
We almost have the basic sweater done. This is much more work to do in a multi-gauge way than the smaller projects I have tackled so far. Hats and socks don't have quite so many variables as sweaters. Bernice and I have to make the final decision on the sleeve decreases and then we need to get going on adding in some stitch patterns. That will be fun.

  1. hi Deb,
    The waffle looks great. Are you doing a top down sweater in lace? Your photo sure looks like it will be a sweater.
