WiP It Wednesday

I had to start a new pair of socks right after I finished my Kermit the Frog socks last week - and for the first time in my life I had a pattern picked out, but knit a swatch out of 4 different sock yarns before I found the perfect one (and in the process decided I need to get two 16" size 2.75mm circulars).

What did I decide to knit this time? Ampersand!

Ampersand A

I loved my Jaywalkers, but the constant chevrons made it so I couldn't get the socks over my cankles - and I think I have found a pattern in Ampersand that gives visual interest, but is still a simple pattern.

I have to re-purpose my sock form here to show you the more interesting part of the pattern - the section that will go down the front of your foot:

Ampersand B

Isn't that pretty? The sock is zipping away as well - it's been less than a week and this first sock is nearly done.

Very nice. I love the colours!

Yes, simple, yet a little bit of interest. And I do love that color. Very rose-ish.

Love that colour combination. I once fell in love with a yarn colour and decorated my bathroom to match.

Love the Ampersand sock! Great for variegated yarn.

That is one of my favorite go-to patterns for variegated yarns!! You colors are gorgeous!!

Looks like you had a fabulous trip to the beach last weekend!!
