Giving it a second shot

Posted on: October 19, 2010

Today’s yarn is Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in the Fresh colorway.  I acquired this yarn in a swap with Yarn Luvin Lizzy.  I had some Noro sock yarn (which we ALL know how I feel about) so when she approached me about doing a trade I was all for it!  Don’t tell her, but I think I got the better end of the deal.  😉

And the pattern I’ve chosen is the Spring Forward Socks (Ravelry link) from Knitty, Summer 2008.

Wait a minute, haven’t we seen this pattern from you before?

Um, yes you have.  Some of you may recall a rather spectacular case of when a great pattern and gorgeous yarn don’t mix.  I’m hoping this time around yields a better result.  I don’t think my ego can survive another trip to the frog pond.

Spring Forwards will be very nice in this colorway. I love knitting that pattern.

I think that this is an excellent yarn for that pattern. I totally feel your pain of denial too….
