Often when I get a new knitting book I'll thumb through the pages and find one, or maybe if I'm really lucky, two projects I would like to knit. Not so with this book. There are at least a half dozen projects that caught my eye, and one I knew I needed to cast on right away - the Morroless Socks.
These socks are knit with Jamieson & Smith 2 ply jumper weight yarn, which I love.
In the Shetland dialect the word morroless means "unmatched" or "odd."
These were a quick, easy knit, and I'm looking forward to wearing them now that the cold weather has arrived.
I have never knit socks with Jamieson & Smith yarn before, so it will be interesting to see how they hold up. I don't mind if the heels felt a bit - it just makes them sturdier and less prone to getting holes in them. However, I don't want the foot or leg to felt or I will be forced to hand them down to Alexandra, and I am a selfish enough mom to want to keep these for myself.
Now for the winner of the Ting Ting giveaway! Thanks to everyone for leaving such kind comments. I wish I was able to give a book to every one of you! I used a random number generator, which is an upgrade from the last time I did a giveaway and literally wrote down names and put them in a hat. The winner is Perpetua! Please email me with your contact info, and I will pass it along to my publisher so she can get the book in the post.
