Entrelac progress in reds

Here are 4 tiers of A Step Above entrelac socks. The first tier is the base triangles and the rest are all rectangles, slanting either right or left. And here's the work so far:


Why the sudden swerve into socks when toddler cardigans are waiting to be delivered? I've been reading The Knitting Goddess just to see what it was like. I'm about 4 goddesses into the book (Grandmother Spider, Isis, Ariadne, the Moirae/Fates). Influence on my life so far: I dug out the Flames sock yarn after reading about Isis, who likes red thread, and I answered a question in the NYTimes crossword puzzle about King Minos's daughter. I love mythology, so reading the stories of the goddesses is very interesting/affecting, but I'm not feeling really touched by the book yet. We shall see.

Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em! They really look wonderful. I'm going to have to get my hands on some LL yarn.

Those are gorgeous. I think I may have to put those socks on my FWIPs list...after the holidays, of course.
