Another Goldenrod.........................no bugs but

Yesterday I showed you Bugga in Goldenrod Crab Spider. Today I show you a Goldenrod Skein from Fiberphile in a Merino/Cashmere/nylon blend. And what it has started to become.

This is the first of a pair of Pomatomuses by CookieA. I started a pair of these a few years ago but never made it past the heel of the first sock! I am since then a more confident sock knitter and felt able to tackle the pattern again.

I also used a really soft yarn blend because that much twisted rib can be harsher when knitted on the skin.

It is slower knitting than other patterns such as Kai-Mei but I still feel such a sense of personal achievement with the end result. The second one is already on the needles. What have you achieved recently that gives you a real sense of accomplishment?

So pretty! Good for you completing this sock! Now onward to the next one, so no SSS! As for me, it was finishing my Mr. Greenjeans and you know why :)

My socks have been put on hold as I've been knitting a shawl and a whisper cardigan.

I'm on whisper 2 now, easy knitting for while I was on holiday.

Love that colour.
