Regia 4-ply Tweed in Colour No. 52.
It's totally smokin' in the Smokin' Socks pattern, designed by the amazingly creative Anne.
Knit as writ, in the 72-stitch version, except I put in a flap heel instead of a short-row, 'cause I wanted more of the pattern to show on the foot and when I do a short-row heel I have to use two-thirds of the stitches in order to make then fit. And also 'cause I'm sometimes ornery that way. The pattern could easily be adjusted to have the smoke rising in different directions on each foot, but I left them the same.
If I were the type to wax poetic, I'd go on and on about how the little tweedy bits float through the rising wafts ... I'll spare you that, though.
Except they are pretty darn cool.
An easy-peasey pattern that I'm sure I'll do again. Thanks, Anne, for another great pattern!
In the Other News Department: From some of the comments in my last past, you'd think none of you had ever received a nail in the mail before.
Of course this was a special nail. Here's the flip side.
I'm just wondering what they replaced all the nails with ... Crazy Glue?
