Wish you had a lovely sunday! Mine was peaceful, and I'm ready to begin a new week! I'm totally settled into my apartment now, (I can begin to think about decorating it! Yay!), and I finally took the time to take some pictures. I still have an Ishbel Shawl and a Color Affection to shoot, but the CA is in the bad corner for the moment: there's something wrong about it, or I haven't understood how to wear it.
I wanted to knit another pair of this pattern to see how these socks would look like in varigated yarn and also to check if there was any error in the pattern. I'm glad I did because I found some issues. The pattern has been corrected since then, but be sure you have read the pattern's page on Ravelry, if you wish to knit these socks. So sorry about that.
Pattern: You can download "By the Seine River" here if you wish. Available in english and in french, thanks to Elise who did a wonderful job.
Yarn: Cascade Yarns, Heritage Painted. (9801) 89 grams.
Needles: Addi Turbo Circular, 2.5mm, 80cm.
About the Yarn: At first, I was disapointed with the color, but actually once knitted, the different colors blend very well and I love it! Chili, Mustard, Wasabi....Spicy Socks! The yarn itself is lovely to knit with a great stitch definition.
Mods: As usual, I did a longer heel flap to fit my high instep. I also lenghtened the leg (almost 8") because I wanted higher socks.
I'm not going to write the usual "About the Pattern" review because, well, you can understand why! ;) Anyway, I'm very happy to have a new pair of socks, and I'm very grateful to all the knitters who are knitting my pattern. :)
Wishing you a lovely week!
