I cast Marigold on last night during my shift at our local Hospice residence (I volunteer to answer phones on Sunday nights - it's very quiet). The yarn color way is Shasta Daisy that I first mentioned here. So fun to knit with! Now we can really say I stopped to smell the flowers! Don't you love how the colors seem to "pop"? As with the Mountain Laurel color way, when there is a change from the green, a very fun color appears only for a stitch or two. This intrigues me to no end; I look forward to these fleeting stitches on each round.
The Marigold pattern is clearly written. Pamela left no stone unturned and gives alternate directions for smaller and larger sizes. Kudos to her! So many sock patterns only give you one size, expecting you to know what/how to make adjustments for an alternate size. If you are like me, something like that can be impossible to fathom (my mind is really very simple). The lace chart she includes is clean and easy to memorize, but still gives you enough change to keep you enthralled with this knit (don't fret, she also writes out the directions for those who don't like charts!). All in all, I can't wait for my Marigolds to finish "growing."
I also have a new purchase showing in the photo. Any guesses on what it is?
