I finished Omelet last Wednesday. I have the perfect photo shoot planned for showing off Omelet, but it won't happen until this weekend so you guys will just have to wait until next week to see the finished shawl. This week I've finally gotten to move on to the socks I've been itching to start. At the end of July the first sock snuck onto my needles during a weekend that was not good for lace knitting. Since the sock was not in the knitting plans I turned my attention back to Omelet rather than immediately casting on it's mate.
I love the colors that Deborah Norville yarn offers, but I'm really getting tired of their winding practices. Can someone please explain how two skeins of yarn in the same dye lot can be wound in opposite directions? After knitting a few inches I discovered the stripes on my second sock had been reversed. I ripped back and restarted. I probably should have ripped back and restarted a second time so that the blue strips at the top of the socks were the same width. This pair of socks is for me and I have no intention of frogging an entire leg and heel just to add 1/4" to the first stripe, but it still bugs me a little that they don't match perfectly.
