Just before Christmas I received two packages from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. The first was filled with a sock yarn splurge that I'll show later. The second was my final 2006 Rockin' Sock Club package. There were two lovely skeins inside. The first was Mustang Sally. This yarn is variegated reds and is so pretty.
The pattern for December was Winter's Eve, designed by Sivia Harding. You can see a sample of a finished sock on Knit Me's Blog. I love pattern. The pattern has a little bit of beading on the cuff and a cable going up the side. Very festive for the holidays. I've never done any beading and knitting - but the results look great! I will have to give this pattern a try.
The second skein is called Rare Gems and each skein is different. Mine is mostly made up of blues, purples, and turquoise. There is also a little shot of pink in one end. Both skeins are the light weight version.
These are the first pictures I've posted form my new camera. I know I have a long way to go to fully figure every thing out. These photos were taken in auto mode. I did have the external flash attached; which seemed to help with capturing correct color. I didn't really have to do any type of color correction. The new camera certainly is fun to use. Hopefully I can continue to improve my skills.
