Pattern: My own
Yarn: Knitpicks Palette - Blush
Needles: Size 2
I added a little special touch to these little pink socks that I started one evening when my daughter called with difficulty with a pattern she was attempting. It turns out the pattern was really all screwed up and I ended improvising on my own. I thought the socks were a little "blah looking" so this past weekend I just added a little crochet trim and the rosette.
Now, I don't know what I am going to do with these socks because they are not machine washable and what new mother has time to hand wash.
My co-worker tried on the neck warmer I posted yesterday and it really does look very nice once worn. I had shown her a couple of other projects I knitted such as the wrist warmers, etc. and she'd say, "Oh, that's nice!" However, I didn't get a sense that she would really like it as a present. So, when she saw the neck warmer, she said, "Oh, that is absolutely gorgeous!" You have to see it in person to get the full colorway effect and the nice sheen the yarn has. I am knitting her one as a birthday present. However, I told her she had to select a different colorway as I would quickly get bored knitting the same pattern with the same yarn.
