These yarns are also LL Shepherd's Sport, but I'm not totally happy with the choice. I think that there should be more contrast, although after letting it sit for a few days I like it a little better than I did. Even so, I've picked out a new set of colors:
I'm hoping that the blue/brown will tone down the red a little, and make a nice fall scarf. We'll see how it goes.
These are whipping along, because the yarn is DK weight. The pattern is the Garter Rib sock from Sensational Knitted Socks--very simple, stretchy rib pattern. I'm using Addi Lace needles for the first time, and I like them. They feel a little flimsy when you take them out of the package, because they are lighter than the regular Addis and KnitPicks that I've been using. Once the yarn is on the needles, they are ideal--nice and pointy, not flimsy at all.
I'm off to the Sasquatch music festival tomorrow for a couple of days of rock and camping, and both the new Chevron Scarf and the Sailor Girl socks will probably be going with me, along with the School Bus Socks. It's about a three hour drive away, so there should be plenty of opportunity to make some progress.
