March mystery sock clue #2

knitting 074

well.... I got clue number 2 on Saturday and finally had the time today to work on it. I think it looks pretty good so far. I have made this sock longer than I usually make them so they will probably end up being a gift maybe for my niece Jessica? I don't know .... the colorway is also something I might not usually wear... but then I get to thinking with the right shoes and shirt they might look good. they will be definite conversation starters! cant wait for clue #3!

March madness entrelac mystery socks

OK so this is the first time I have decided to try and make the mystery sock pattern for Raverly!. what an interesting time to start...... with entrelac. ug! the idea at first scared me and tool me a while (hours) to figure out. But now I think I've got it down pat. I hope. I started out using this yarn

yarn for entrelac socks

Which is beautiful and knits up great but the pattern wasn't showing up so great so I had to frog back all my work (again :( ) I was up till 2 am last nite trying to figure this pattern out. I know me and I would have torn it out later anyway because it would have drove me nuts. So this is the yarn I am using now
