Cedar Fever

The title of this post? It's an Austin thing -- and I'm getting it in more ways than one.

This is a sock I started yesterday. It's more Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn, this time in the colorway Cedar -- a birthday gift from my friends Sharon & Janelle. They're going to be in town in a few days, and I wanted to get started with this. I'm using the slipped stitch rib from the six-stitch pattern chapter in Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks. I really like this ribbing -- very tight. I've never been completely happy with how my hand-knit socks stay up. I think these will.

Keep an eye on upcoming posts. They'll be to dye for.

  1. Not just an Austin thing - San Antonio, too. The cold I had at the beginning of the month has sort of morphed into cedar fever. Despite the name, the yarn is very pretty!
