Having not that much time to knit at the moment, I nonetheless take delight on the sockapal-2-za progresses. Loads of beautiful projects!
Surfing the net, I found a quiz sorting out what kind of sock yarn you are!?!? This sounded so
stupid interesting that I had to try it myself.
On real socks, I made little progress on the Lacy Scallops sock. We recently got hold of some LOST tapes, you know, the TV series, everybody was/is watching. It was aired here last winter, so I heard, but happened to pass completely unnoticed (by me). But now I'm hooked. (Don't spoil it for me, I've only seen the first four episodes.) I wouldn't really call it a relaxing TV programme, but it definitely clears my mind after a long reading day.

The l-o-v-e-l-y picot edge troubles me this time. It is, well, not really too loose, but curls to the outside. Any ideas how to solve this problem? I'm thinking about an extra seam.. or am I?
To brighten up the gloomy day here (first taste of the coming seven months of autumn/winter) I'll show some pictures of the growing Clapotis.

Not so great however is the quality of the yarn (Lana Grossa Cool Wool 2000 print). I had at least one knot in every skein so far. One knot even featured four threads, an additional 3-4 metre thread knoted onto the main thread. I don't mind the interruption of colour repeat in this project. But to unknot considerable lengths of yarn, unfit for further use (there are no seams..) gives me an uneasy feeling of being cheated. Look:
