House MD Socks while watching House MD
My contest ends tomorrow at midnight (PST).
I finished my House MD socks last night while watching House MD.
I used some hand dyed yarn from See Jayne Knit. I love the colours of this yarn and I think she does a fantastic job dyeing them.
I took the picture with no flash so that the lace work would show up better. As (I hope) you can see, there is a little row of canes all around the top. House walks with a cane, so I thought, why not modify the candy cane sock pattern to make it longer and more walking cane like.
I did learn something though, mixing bright colour patterns and texture stitches like lace don't go so well. As you can see here in this photo, bright light hides the texture pattern.
Next time I do lace I'll stick to a more solid colour rather than self striping yarn.
