Could not resist this colorway ! !

Oh, the Purples. And what about that Gold! ! !

When unwound its beauty was undeniable.

Such rich colors.

Once I decided it would become a lovely pair of sox I searched Ravelry for a pattern that would not interfer with the gorgeous colors.

So many great patterns to choose from.

After all the oooh-ing and ah-ing

'Honey Badger' designed by Irishgirlieknits with its eyelet pattern is just enough to keep my interest in what otherwise would have been plain Stockinette knitting.

Have not turn out exactly as I thought.

The Gold is not as predominate as I expected.

Interesting . . . .

Only a couple more inches before I cast off.

Can't wait to wear 'em.

Look What I Won !

Last week Ann Buud had a giveaway on her blog.

I was lucky enough to win a copy of one of her many books. My choice!

The one I added to the Ann Budd section of my library -

The knitter's handy book of sweater patterns


My book arrived today!!!

You know

I'll be spending this evening browsing through these pages

I like that there's a sturdy spine - the book lays flat.

Nifty elastic page keeper, too.

No more thumbimg through looking for my lost page.
