I've finally started the Brethren socks...IN RED!!!!!! I'm taking Crafty Andy's lead with the bright colors. I'm also doing a grey hooded sweater vest for by sister's November. Pictures will follow soon, I hope.

Is that (Gasp!) Jungle Red, Passion In Spain Red, Another Red-Eye Red, or merely...Red?

C'mon, we all gotta know!

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

The label just says red. It's Deborah Norville sock yarn. I guess I can't expect much more.

Hey Terry congratulations! I just finished a pair of bright orange. I like bright colors they make me smile!

You were my inspiration for the bright color red. It's too bad solids are so hard to find in my area; especially bright colors.

Have fun with the pattern. But double check your gauge after you have knit a bit...I ended up tighter than expected once I got most of the first attempt done. Changed needle size, and it was all okay.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.


My first pair were RED alpaca from Misty Alpaca. I love wearing them. In winter especially last winter when things were pretty bla that red brightened my day!

That's awesome, Terry! I look forward to some progress pics, hopefully? Brethren is a great pattern. I second Joe's comment about checking gauge. I probably wasn't as careful as I could have been as mine are a tad looser than I'd prefer.
