For now...I have a finished object (FO)... a pair of socks.
I have lots of sock yarn and certainly didn't need another skein, but when I saw the color "From The Ashes" from local yarn company/dyers, Ancient Arts, I couldn't resist. Previous blog post and pictures are here. I used exactly half of the generous skein and next month the rest is going to a friend for her to enjoy. When I saw the skein I didn't know that it was going to stripe. That was a pleasant surprise.
Pattern: Generic. Cast on 60 sts., stocking stitch leg and foot,
short row heel, shaped toe.
Needles: US #0/ 2.0 mm
Yarn: Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts
Color: From The Ashes
Ravelry Link: From The Ashes
Note: The socks are actually a wee bit brighter than in the picture, a nice rich red. The colors in my earlier blog post are more accurate.
