until I strayed from the staight and narrow (knitting one pair of socks) to starting another. Last weekend I realized it's only six weeks until my good friend and neighbour will leave to join her husband in North Africa and since I'm really slow at finishing a complete pair, I'll probably need all that time to finish a present for her. So I decided to start her socks, using a lovely alpaca blend in greens and purples that I got at the HWSDA conference in June. This yarn is from Alpaca Plus here in Alberta and is so nice to work with. The pattern I chose is Daisies by marie flyfly.
So here is the first sock just ready to start the heel flap:
This picture is a bit dark. It's really working up quickly and it's such an easy lace pattern that I've had no problem knitting on the bus.
And just to keep the Fleece Artist pair in mind, pictures of the finished sock and the one in progress (just ready to turn the heel)
