Knitting Notes



Pattern: Waving Lace Socks by Evelyn A. Clark from Favorite Socks
Yarn: Knitpicks Risata in the Woodland Sage colorway
Needles: 1 1/2 DPNs

My Waving Lace socks are done, pretty much just under the wire for March's Sockdown challenge. This was a fairly easy pattern, and actually a pretty quick knit, when I was working on it.

The Risata yarn is interesting. I really want to feel what it's going to feel like after I wash it once. It definitely has potential, but I'll need a wash to gauge the cottoniness of it. I do think the stitch definition isn't as good as a full wool yarn, but it's not bad. I do definitely love the color, and it does seem a little lighter weight than a full wool, so like I said, it definitely has potential.
