Golden scales

Oh hello WIP Wednesday. Been a while! I've finally got something new on the needles.

My sunny pomatomus socks have been a welcome contrast to the gloom and rain over the last few days.

After spending many months on my wedding shawl with its long rows and very long repeats, this sock feels speedy in comparison. Had I started these socks after a relatively simple project, I'm sure they would seem much more difficult. Funny that. I haven't finished one pattern repeat yet, but it still feels like I am making progress.

  9. Oh I love Pomatomous! Word of warning - I screwed it up after turning the heel and starting the instep. Wish I had thread a lifeline or two because I ended up starting over from the beginning. Lovely sunny colour!
