Sockapalooza start

This is the current state of my Isabella from Knitty. The shoulders were crocheted together, the V-neck looks good. The thing might be too tight however. But for a final diagnosis I have to sew it up. Then the hem and the armholes have to be done up and it can go back to being hot.

This is the start of my sockapalooza socks. It is a mocaic pattern from Barbara Walkers Treasuries (the green one). The socks are slightly tight due to the yarn carried behind the slipped stitches, but I think they will be okay unless my pal as an extraordinarily high instep.

Your sockapalooza start looks fabulous! I haven't tried the mosaic patterns, but they are on my ever expanding "to-knit" list. I will be starting my pals socks soon.

Hi sock pal,

Cool looking socks there -- I see you're trying the colorwork that you hoped to tackle. I'm still looking around for the perfect yarn and pattern and I hope to get started soon!!!
