Stuck to it

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?

How about Duckies?

The Blackrose socks look GREAT! I love your shoes too. They are adorable.

Lovely socks! Jungle Cat sounds interesting. I'll be looking out for some semi solid colorway in the future! Sorry, can't help with Sport weight socks patterns.

Cloud Nine Socks are sport weight. I think I want to crack open my Misty Highlands

Awsome socks! I love Cat Bordhi's Coriolis sock for sport weight.

Those are lovely socks. Whatever pattern you pick, I think it should be something lovely for spring!
