Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday

I got busy today and almost forgot to post my wips...

First up, Crazy Socks.

A basic sock pattern (great for long car rides) using Zauberball Crazy, 75% virgin wool/25% nylon.

I knitted a short row heel for something different and a more rounded toe.

BUT! as you can see, they will not be matching very well despite my yarn manipulations. So I am just going with it. Yep, just gonna see how they look when finished. (I can always give them as a gift)

Next, "Not Really" Gringotts Goblin Socks based on the pattern Gringotts Goblin Socks by Helen Waittes (rav link)

"Not Really" because I changed the pattern. The original pattern has the silver yarn cabling throughout the leg with the green. These are the socks I whined talked about in Throwing in the towel.

I never did figure out how the festive knitting technique worked to make the cabling. So I just knitted two color work in the ribbing. I have just started the heel.

I'm kinda making it up as I go.

I figured it out--you knit in your sleep! That's how you turn so many WIPs to FOs. Great socks!
