But...fair isle? They had me.
The blue wool sock yarn is dark blue (what was I ranting about on my last post?) and the white is Socrates alpaca sock yarn.
I had to do the cuff in advance (homework for knitting class!) and during the hour class I finished 2 rows. Feeling all inspired I worked on it most of the afternoon.
By Sunday night, after even working on the gansey cardigan, I had this much. Plus my blue green sock got the heel turned and gusset finished. The pattern is Green Isle from Around the World in Knitted Socks. The pattern has 2 panels of double Irish chain separated by a row of shamrocks that run up both sides of the leg. I am kind of enjoying this.
In a masochistic way.
