I did, indeed, stick to it, and finished up the second Blackrose sock last night.Were I to knit these socks again (and it's likely, it's a very pretty pattern) I'd use a less busy yarn that really lets the lace shine. I love this colourway (Nana's brooch) though, and these will definitely be a favourite pair.
I love how the Jungle Cat knits up and can't wait to try it in a shawl or cardigan - it creates such a lovely fabric, squishy fabric. And of course, because I love shiny things, I LOVE the sheen of the bamboo. One thing to keep in mind though... the bamboo is a bit slippery, and if I'm not careful, I end up sliding all over the house (hardwood and linoleum throughout)
I now have absolutely no socks on the needles (just two sweaters and a shawl....) so I'm in search of another pattern. I have a beautiful skein of Stray Cat, so I'm on the look out for a nice sport weight sock pattern... any suggestions?
