What's on your needles?

If you've been in the shop any time over the last couple of weeks, you know that Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn (Ravelry link) is the topic of choice around here right now.

I've got a pair of socks on the needles right now from that book, the Herringbone Rib Socks (again, that's a Ravelry link, so you must be logged into Ravelry to see that). To make these socks I am using the most recent colorway from Lorna's Laces, Roadside Gerry (in Shepherd Sock). Here are pictures of the yarn and the socks--

In progress: Roadside Herringbone

As you can see, this is just about the perfect marriage of yarn and pattern.

What's on your needles this week? Anything that you're just as happy with? Or are you maybe even doing something from this book?

Gorgeous socks! That pattern suits the colorway so well. Modesitt rules!


I don't have the new book yet, am still waiting on an amazon delivery: I can't wait to try out the sideways socks pattern.

On the sticks today: Parallelogram, Clapotis, a teeny bunny rabbit (gift for a friend's baby) and a couple of dishcloths. Nothing too exciting but easy in-front-of-the-tv knitting!

Have yourselves a great day, Hanks Gals!
