1st of March: Sock Madness begins!

I see good things ahead:

The pattern is a slip stitch pattern with a starshaped toe and a tomato-wedged heel. It’s SlipStripeSpiral by Mylene Pijpers. Mylene is a Dutch woman living in Australia and she’s also chatting in the Dutch Sock group and it’s great fun!

Here’s the thread with all the info

We have two weeks to knit this pattern. If we succeed we get sorted into teams and then the competition will start. For these two weeks I’ve pimped my ravatar, my Pippi pirate cat is now munching on the test sock that a friend of Mylene knitted, WollyThoughts, also from Australia.

I’ve choses two muted colours so I’ll end up with non-shouty socks that I’ll definitely wear.

(the cat print on the wall is a wood block print I made a hundred years ago)
