FO: Falling Water

I have loved this pattern since I first saw it. But as I didn't realize until I started that is is virtually the same as River Rapids Socks (see August 7 blog entry)! And silly me, I knit both in purple.



I used #5 Options for a nice airy lace. The yarn is Linie Supersocke Silk. It became very fuzzy as I knit although it felt nice. The fabric drapes nicely but when I soaked it in Eucalan, it ran like mad!! The deep purple faded quite a bit. I won't use this yarn again. Too bad because it feels very nice.




Til next time - Happy knitting!

Very pretty! And I say you can never have too much purple. :)

Light purple or dark, it's still very lovely indeed. :)
