Midnight Rose Meadows

Ta dah! Another pair of socks. I am on fire!


These are Blackrose Socks from the winter edition of Knitty in Midnight Meadows Sundara sock yarn. I loved this yarn, but it nearly had me beat. The varegiation in the dye is quite subtle and I wanted a pattern that would show it to its best advantage. I cast on a number of socks in this yarn which were frogged - Leyburns, Paul Attwell and Charades twice. Then I chanced on the Blackrose pattern. It is lovely! Just enough lace to be interesting, yet an ideal television viewing sock. However I did get slightly more than I bargained for when whipping up the left sock. I thought my stitch marker had disappeared, and then I found it knitted into the ankle of the sock. Alas, the marker had to be snipped.

God they look so good. I'm considering copying with some nearly black yarn I've got!
