fiddle fiddle fiddle Toe!

So, I thought it would be nice to try something new since The Summer of Socks has started yesterday. So I picked up some needles and the Magic Ball yarn and fiddled with Knitty's tutorial and here it is:
toe-up

A toe!!!

I'm going to (try to) knit Elfine's socks by Anna Bell . I think the beautifull yarn (José?) and the pattern complement each other perfectly.

Now, to harder choices. I need to chose one of these two colors for the mystery stole that starts next week:

zephyr wool-silk

The one on the left is called bottle green, the one on the right is called basil. Aren't they awsome? How can I ever chose which color I'll use? (Hint: help me!)And the yarn is soooooo soft and shiny! It's too good to be true.

Another thing that's too good to be true: wool-silk stookhok

I ordered some of the awsome undyed sockyarn at 'Het Stookhok' and this silk/wool blend as well. It is awsome and feels just like Lorna's Laces' Lion and Lamb. I'm such a lucky girl!

Socky toe!!

Hmm... I'd lean toward the Basil for the shawl, myself. Both are pretty,though!

Guess what I just started: Elfine's socks! Really. I only use a different yarn, a handdyed Opal and do two socks at the same time. The pattern is so nice.
