Sometimes it takes a little nudge to get things rolling.  The slight, cooler shift in the weather is a good reminder that summer won't last forever and that I need more handknit socks.  After just a bit of focused knitting time, I released this purple pair into the wild.

Luxor made with Paula Violet.  Paula is 100% Superwash Blue Faced Leicester and has always been one of my favorites.  It's a hardwearing yarn with a subtle shimmer.  

This pattern is a fun knit and comes in several sizes.

The rounds of knit and purl combinations create a split diamond design.  There's just enough variety to make it interesting.  The textured fabric is cushy, elastic and comfortable.

And now I have to deal with this.

Empty needles that need a new project.  Not a bad way to start the week.
