So it was Lintilla by a landslide… but one of the comments (the lovely Rayna from the Crystal Diva blog) recommended a look at this:
It’s Trillian by Martina Behm, the same designer who created Lintilla. I was instantly smitten and cast on.
And I’d have to say it’s working out pretty nice so far :) Lintilla’s not dead though….
I bought this in Halifax. I haven’t a clue what it is. It’s either fingering or sport, and there’s a decent amount of it, but I’m not sure how much. Martina’s patterns are awesome because you can stop when you think you’re going to run out and you still have a useful thing at the end of it, and that makes this yarn a good candidate! Oh… and of course it’s back in my colour comfort zone…yes, this shall be my Lintilla.
Also making their way onto the needles are a pair of these!
Yes, socks! Me! I hate dpns! I’ve never made a sock! I read this pattern though and actually laughed out loud. The writing is charming, funny, clear, and seems meant to guide a chicken like me into sock knitting. It’s the Easy Peasy Sock by Stacey Trock. It’s worsted, so it doesn’t freak me out too much, and they’re ankle socks so I think I’ll actually wear them. Cast away!
