Campanula #1 complete

Merry Christmas everyone. With all the Christmas knitting, my Campanulas have been languishing in my knitting bag for a while - but I finished the first sock and I love it - this is Bernat's Cool Cotton and I love the stitch definition - and they are really soft and comfy. I can't wait to finish the second sock - Our Walk for the Cure will be in April - so I'm sure they'll be finished by then...

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday!

Merry (belated) Christmahanukwanzakah!! (or Diwali/Deepavali, Yalda, Eid, Dong Zhi...whatever!) Happy Winter-Solstice Festival(s) of your choice! (I've decided to enjoy them all, please pass the nog.)

Oy to the world!
Love to all, XOX - MezzoDiva

Campanula FO

My Campanula socks are finally complete. I used Tofutsie and I must admit I don't think I would use this yarn for this pattern again. However, I am not sure how fair an assessment that is since I don't believe I will ever use this yarn again for anything. I don't really care for it. I do believe, though, that the pattern needs a wool yarn. Having said that, I am pleased with the overall fit but I don't think it will do such a good job of holding up the shape in this yarn.

One of these days I am going to have to re-knit this pattern again in a wool yarn.
