Calla Socks

I've got a pattern in the latest issue of Pom Pom Quarterly - one of my favourite publications.

I love the way this magazine is put together; the design and the styling, I love the yarn they gave me and I love the way the magazine is wrapped up like a little present when it arrives:

These are my socks:

Lace and twisted stitches, petals and clean lines.

The yarn is Shalimar Yarns Breathless, it's merino with some cashmere and silk and it is delightful, really - it's full of delight. I used it in my Coesite hat and cowl and last week some more arrived on my doorstep, I am very happy about this. It gives beautiful stitch definition and it's soft and bouncy, the colour used for these socks is oyster - delicate and subtle (wait until you see the colours of the aforementioned latest arrival, not delicate and subtle but equally beautiful)


The back of the issue is also very pretty:

And there are lots of lovely patterns - look here, I've got a few summer dresses that would look pretty with a Lobelia cardigan over them.

  2. The socks are stunning! I'm so glad you like the yarn. The magazine looks wonderful, I'll have to look for it next time I'm at the bookstore.
