Finished Socks and a Tattoo
These simple vanilla socks were knit using 2 skeins of Panda Cotton in the Bastille colorway. This colorway was a nice surprise, I thought it was actually pretty ugly in the skein but it knits up beautifully, isn't it nice when that happens? It's a lot better than the opposite, the evil enchanting yarn that looks so snazzy and tempting in the skein and then pools in a hideous pattern when it's knit up. The pattern is the basic 7 stitches per inch sock from the book Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd, I know I've talked about this book before but I have to say it again, if you're looking to get into sock knitting, this book is a great resource!
Also, check out my tattoo:
Yup, it's a butterfly,what do you think? Ok, ok, it's fake! Did I fool you for even a second? I got this little guy out of a 50 cent machine outside of a store and though it would be fun :) I used to love temporary tattoos when I was a kid so I couldn't resist!
