add 1, subtract 1.4

BPT has commenced, and I looooove the Malabrigo. It’s just soooo soft.

I’m alternating between 2 balls, but I’m trying to think of how I should mix it up so that the sleeves aren’t two other completely different skeins from the body. Hmmm.

Knee sock, into the calf decreases of the second sock:

The black raglan is blocking, but that’s boring. Pictures to come.

    Love love love the socks, they look like they coordinate with your mini-sweater out of Shepherd Worsted. :] I’ve been able to resist the Malabrigo so far – not having access to it where I live, but I want to try it soon, I’ve heard just great things :]

    What pattern are you using for the knee socks?

    BPT looks great!

    Back when I knit mine, I didn’t know that kettle dyed yarn meant I couldn’t count on dye lots for anything. So I have a stripe across the body that is different from the rest. The thing is, I didn’t even notice it until I photographed it. I wouldn’t worry too much about the sleeves, but I’m not extremely picky about this sort of thing.

    By the way, with my Malabrigo, I ended up with the coolest pooling around both elbows. I’m excited to see if you get the same. :)

    It’s remarkable that your Lorna’s Laces socks always stripe so nicely! I wonder how you do it?!?

    Those sox look awesome! And I’ll ask too — what pattern are you using? My sister wants kneesocks for the holidays…

    Hey Laura!
    Long time no chat. Hope all is well. Just wondering–that horseshoe cable you’re working on that gorgeous Malabrigo–I’m doing the same for my Blackberry short cardi from Knitty–and I got a big hole in the middle of mine. How do you keep that from happening?
