The Socks formerly known as Sizzle . . .

have been newly dubbed as Orange Twist Socks. This was not supposed to be my next FO but since the weaving board is not portable and socks are, I just seem to be knocking the socks off the needles left and right.

The yarn was hand-dyed at Shepherds Harvest by moi and the heavier weight yarn required that I abandon the standard Widdershins pattern. So, I made up my own pattern as I went along.

I'd supply more details but all this knitting has caused some tendinitis in my right wrist. It's a little painful to type at the moment, so I'll just let the picture speak for itself.

Let's hope that taking a break from knitting to finish weaving the shawl will be sufficient to heal the ol' achy breaky hand.

Take care of that wrist!

I don't like to think of you being in pain and all. But if you had to injure yourself knitting anything, I'd have to say those socks fit the bill! Lovely, just lovely. And all the better for your having done the dye job yourself.

oooh, I LOVE the colors in those socks! And it's a great picture - the depth of field really shows off the socks. (and isn't it hard taking pictures of your own feet?!)

Those socks look thick and cozy and fantabulous!

Rest that wrist. Ooch.
