The Temptress

So, you want to know who I am cheating on my Yarn Pirate Icicle socks with, hmm?

Meet Mandy:



Spunky Eclectic Super DK sock in 'Mandy,' to be exact.

You have to love socks that knit up so fast you are past the gusset in less than 2 days. I wish all sock knitting was like that. I love the Icicle socks, but knitting 78 stitches on size 1s takes so much longer than 56 stitches on size 3s. I get the feeling that this will be a quick and dirty affair, and then the Icicle socks will be back in my arms (okay - my hands) again.

Nice socks Jo, did you just name them Mandy or is that the name of the pattern/ or wool?Jaimes

LOL - The colourway is actually called Mandy. I think the dyer had a line all named after songs - and this one was 'Mandy' by Barry Manilow.

You know I used to go to school with lots of girls named Mandy. Now I don't know a soul with that name? What happened to them all? Were they turned into sock yarn? Or did they grow up and start going by "Amanda?"
