First Pomatomus sock


Another super quick update, written before morning coffee and everything. I did cast on for the Pomatomus socks from Knitty with 2,5 mm dpns and the lovely Piece of Beauty yarn I mentioned some weeks ago. The yarn is heaven to knit with, and the larger than usually sock needles enables progress of nice speed. The pattern is easy to memorize, and I judge these socks to be a fast knit. You see, I have already reached the heelflap. The Piece of Beauty yarn is slightly thicker than the in the pattern suggested yarn, and I decided to make only two pattern repeats in the leg part of the sock. You don’t want to run out of hand painted yarn, do you?

And after these socks, I will finish the second Rosebud mitten. Somehow I lost my urge to finish them when Sofia got the Basketweave mittens, but a girl of ten needs several pairs, so there is no reason to delay the finishing anymore.

I think I'm the only one in blogland who hasn't knit Pomatomus socks and I love them! I've had the pattern printed out and ready to go for months. Yours are going to be beautiful in that lovely handpainted yarn!

Beautiful start! Is that the 'robe and bowl' color? It looks wonderful. I have some sock yarn I need to use, maybe that will be the pattern.

Those socks are going to be beautiful!
I will be interested to see if you have enough yarn - my Piece of Beauty socks are now on their third skein and I am worried I might run out even now - eek!

Those are going to be lovely. I got some Piece of Beauty yarn for Christmas but I haven't started knitting with it yet. I'm glad to hear your rave review!
