In contrast with my ever-so-pink socks, I am also going through quite a bit of a blue phase as well. I’m obsessed with navy and deeper, richer blues in ways I’ve never been before.
I remember when Amanda submitted this design to a Craftster “One Stitch to Rule Them All” challenge (where I submitted my Garter Lace Tote) and I thought I’d never be able to make something that complex and stylish.
I’m pretty chuffed that I’m making it through with nary a worry. This is a wonderful pattern and easy to customize for a perfect fit. I just split off the sleeves and am making my way down the body. I can’t wait to finish this sweater!
It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t also cast on for a new pair of socks. These are Eleanor socks, a pattern I’ve made once before (with not such great success).
This yarn is quite a treat. The varying shades of blue are combining so nicely, and I love working with it.
I’m working the eyelets the same this time, so I think I should be really happy with these socks.
Meanwhile, I’m relishing the blues.
