It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

The FOs seem to be happening around here, but now I have nothing on the needles!


Pattern: Dublin Bay Socks
Yarn: Twisted Fiber Arts Arial in Netherfield on US 1 needles


As the yarn is self-striping I wanted a simple pattern but something more than just plain stockinette. Dublin Bay gave them a nice little bit of lace down the sides and made them more interesting to knit.


I'm also in love with Twisted Fiber Arts. Her striping yarns are just amazing. And how could I resist a yarn in the colorway Netherfield? Oh, Mr. Bingley. Not quite Mr. Darcy but still, Jane Austen for the win.

I admire your mad sockmaking skillz. Someday I will progress past scarves, so help me...

I like the socks - the lacy section works well.

I've just been looking at the Twisted site. She has some really great names for her yarns, doesn't she?

Those are lovely, you creative genius, you.

I'm going to have to take a look at the Twisted Fiber Arts page. And I quite like Mr. Bingley, too, even if his sisters are vile. :)
