Started using a Malabrigo sock yarn with a lace pattern. Got a full lace pattern going on a top down sock when I thought--oh, this is far too lovely to hide in my shoes. With not a second thought the unraveling began and I started a hat instead. A very simple hat so that the colorway will show in all its glory. It reminds me of the late autumn fog on Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve next to the Pacific Ocean.
Now this should keep me busy, but no. I had to see the Helix sock on Knitty. I had to start on that right away. I mean, afterall it does involves stripes.
