Marilinda socks

Last week I bought Cookie A's book, Knit.Sock.Love. and a skein of Baah yarn at Stash in Corvallis, Oregon. It is a gorgeous hot pink skein of superwash merino and I spent an hour going through the book, deciding on a pattern. I finally picked Marilinda, for the beautiful heel. I have not knit a sock with the foot pattern running all the way down the heel. So gorgeous and fun to knit. I am going to have to buy a pair of clogs just to show these socks off!

The lace chart for this pattern is very straight forward and I picked it up pretty quickly. I love knitting lace so much, and these socks have so much to offer! The cables are just fantastic and I love the use of the double yarn over. I feel so smart when I am working of these socks.

If you haven't checked out this book, you really should. It is not available online for less than $200 that I have found (however you can buy the digital book for $16.95 on Ravelry), but my local yarn store had it, so you should check yours. I want to knit nearly every sock in here.

So I was on a yarn diet at some point this year, and fell off the wagon, and am trying to get back on. I did buy two skeins of sock yarn this week, and I am swearing to myself that these will be the last before I move in May! Seriously, no more yarn for me!

I bought these online at Eat.Sleep.Knit. Beautiful, right? I know these will be amazing socks, and I'm really excited to try these yarns. The green one is Sweet Georgia Yarn in Lettuce Wrap and the blue one is Tanis Fiber Arts in Peacock. Gorgeous!

But seriously, no more yarn for me. No more.


Happy knitting!
