Little Purple Sock

I knit this little guy out of some Knit Picks yarn I hand dyed (hand painted? I'm not sure the difference). The little white specks of failure knid of bum me out, but overall, I love the color and the lack of pooling.

Originally, I wanted to knit the My So Called Scarf pattern into socks, but it would have none of it. It's a shame, because I loved that pattern with semi-solid yarns.

I did a little experimenting (ok a lot, and some swearing) to approximate the woven effect of the scarf and I think it came out pretty nicely. This yarn and I have had a long and torrid history so I am happy it's all coming together in the end.

This sock will have to be lonely for an indefinate amount of time because I believe I have possibly torn my rotator cuff (again) and moving it hurts. Also, I've been thinking about quilting a lot. I have space now that there is a dining room table in our bedroom.
