Blues

This past week I finished my purse and blue cable socks. The purse was a lot of fun to knit. I loved how quickly it went together. The i-cord was not difficult at all. I did have to modify it. The pattern called for only a 3 stitch i-cord, which would have been a string. I didn't feel it would be substantial enough for a purse of this size, so I did a 6 stitch cord. Like most things I am afraid to attempt, it was not as difficult as what I thought it would be. I have received several compliments on the purse, including a friend asking me to make one for her. She actually offered to pay me to make one....not sure if I want to take her up on it or not.

The picture of the socks is a little deceptive. It looks as if the front sock is bigger, while actually they are the exact same size, probably more so than any of my other pairs I have completed. I love the Lorna's Shepherd Worsted. They are so soft, I have them on as I type this. The only thing, I am afraid they will pill easily. I already have some fuzzies that I don't typically get with sock yarn.

I knew you would manage the I-cord with no problem. It's almost a no-brainer, it's that easy. You did a beautiful job, and I like the thicker handle. I agree, I like something more substantial as well. The socks came out perfect too! Wow, you are one talented lady. :)
