amazingly orange lace

VS is blocking, and socks are socking.

I'm really loving the Hedera pattern with the orange. Knit up, it's even more subdued than in the ball. A nice pumpkin. (Of course, through the magic of photography, the sock looks brighter than the ball in this shot. Oh well.)

Hedera sock on blocking VS sweater

The pumpkin color of the socks, combined with the VS motifs (which I still think look like spooky owls), means that these socks are destined to be worn at this year's Pumpkin Festival.

Despite the thunderstorm we got last night (which was nice, but not as spectacular as it was supposed to be), it's still humid here. In fact, according to the weather page, it's even more humid today than yesterday. I was really hoping VS wouldn't take all weekend to dry, but I fear it might. Alas.

I love those socks, and in orange! Mine were green, but orange is great (my favorite).

I absolutely adore how your Hedera socks are coming along! I'm knitting them too at the moment, but with a pretty heavily variegated yarn, and I think they look so much better in a single colored yarn like yours! Gorgeous!

I know you think the orange was random, but clearly the knitting gods were guiding your mouse when you bought it. Looks great in that pattern.

Orange is my new favorite color. Those socks are looking great! I love the stitch definition.

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern. It will be soon!

Can you set a fan on your owls...I means sweater? That might help combat the humidity a bit. (And yes, I've thought of them as owls ever since you first mentioned that.)

Lovely socks! They don't LOOK abused at all! ;)
