Knitting Notes

I haven't had a ton of knitting time this week, so I've spent it working on my Sockdown socks.

I'm definitely enjoying Eunice. The pattern is interesting, but not too difficult. And I love, love, love this Malabrigo yarn. I can't even begin to describe how nice it is to work with. (And how much more tragic it is that my original skein of Solis got a bit cut up. I think I'll have come to come up with a scarf to make with that so I can hopefully use the cut pieces. But I digress.)

Malabrigo love aside, I've actually done more work on Kiila this week, because I'm loving the pattern. (And that's saying a lot, because I cannot emphasize enough how much I love the Malabrigo.) The above is the finished first clue. I'll admit I haven't been able to successfully do the cabling without the needle (I kept losing the stitch, so gave up), but I'm still really enjoying the pattern. I'm already about a third of the way into the gusset, and I just love how the increases are incorporated into the cable pattern. I'm definitely enjoying the toe up construction. As if I needed another subset of sock patterns to hunt down...
