Good question. How about socks? Socks for Sven!
I started these socks during a pre-honeymoon trip to Germany in October. We had another party for those relatives of Sven who could not travel to New York for the actual event. Anyway, I'm still working away on the cuff of the first sock.
The pattern is Priscilla's Dream Socks, with a modified cuff in twisted rib. Twisted rib, as I have discovered, takes me a lot longer to work than regular old K2P2 ribbing. Still, it makes a nice change.
The yarn is some Socka Color that someone gave me a few years ago. It's been waiting patiently in the stash for the perfect moment. German yarn for a trip to Germany to make socks for my German husband. Perfect, no?
