more of the same

So... knitting... knitting... knitting... I finally got the Lorna's Laces Safari yarn to talk to me, and tell me what type of pattern... I cast on 68 stitches, and did a 1x1 ribbing for 1 1/2 inches, and now comes the boring part (so to speak) of doing the leg... Fortunately the yarn is a 'patterning' type of yarn and I can watch the pattern grow!

In addition I have been making 'medicine' bags and found some scarlet and bridal white crochet thread to knit with, I am still needing a sunny yellow, a grass green, and a bright blue, along with black... another day I will post pix of the stuff!

Hun, next time try using a basketweave pattern...or a broken rib...or other simple textural pattern with those self-patterning yarns! You'll find some very interesting NEW patterns developing and you won't get so bored with knitting the leg and instep of the socks! Woohoo!
