Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug Alizarine
Pattern: Saucy from Cider Moon
Eye of Partridge Heel
A few extras for the package.
Row Counter Bracelet
Two skeins of Mama-E's Fiber Sock Yarn
the colourway is Nettie and it was an exclusive dye
for Pick Up Sticks.
This was the first time I had used Jitterbug, it's very nice and feels great when you are using it, bouncy and smooth. I moved down from a 3mm to a 1.5 mm needle, shortened the leg repeat from 7 to 5 and even then only had about six inches of yarn left after grafting. You would need two skeins if you were knitting for a larger foot size, at $21.00 a skein that is a little expensive. When I blocked them they bled quite a bit of pink, I hope that was a one off and they now fixed themselves.
My sock pal likes bright colours, cables and lace, I hope she likes the socks. I will pack them up and have them in the mail on the 2nd. This has been a lot fun, even thought I fretted about the yarn and pattern, and actually knit two other pairs besides these.
