Lohengrin

Remember that wool candy yarn from last Friday? Well...it is now turning into the first socks to be cast on in 2010!

Meet Lohengrin. This pattern is fun, but quite challenging...alot of twists and turns. It's sure to keep me out of trouble for a week or two...or four, at least! I can't watch the "hour of Bauer" and knit these socks at the same time.

Is this not the sweetest little heart you've ever seen? Thank you, C!! :)

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend...stay warm and dry...and remember to take a moment to make your heart smile!!

Those will be some fantastic socks! I know I'd have to knit them in peace and quiet.

That little heart makes me smile.

Gail, I felt bad there was no orange in the heart. I'm glad it doesn't need it. Nice border treatment!
C & thanks!

I knit that sock when it first was published and it still is one of my favorite sock patterns ever. I knit mine in DIC Smooshy.

Checked out the socks you are making, I wonder how they will fit, the pattern is very pretty. The heart is a dear sweet little thing.
