Do you buy souvenir yarn? We went to Cape May this September and I just had to check out the LYS there. So my SIL Mimi and I spent a good amount of time looking around while the men patiently waited. I can't leave a yarn store without a souvenir so I bought a skein of Ty-Dy Sock yarn in a really fun color. (Mimi bought an issue of Interweave Crochet.) And when I was finally ready for Vilai, I thought it would be just right.
I think this picture is the most accurate for color. Vilai, like most of the patterns in this book is just challenging enough that you have to pay attention but not so hard that I wanted to quit. I never did memorize it, though.
But the best part of all is that Mr. Truck finally took a picture that I can use. We just won't talk about all the ones I deleted.
And inspired by Lynn, who is so generous with her charity knitting, I've knit a pair of teeny tiny socks for charity from some leftover Opal.
