Celtic Rain Forests (or something)
I finally got enough bananas knitted to be able to return to the Rainforest socks & finish them. Alas too late for the June draw.
Then I got on with the Celtic Cable socks - taking the cable right up the back, & jiggering the row before the rib to give K2, P2 rib at the top. They look good too.
Yarns? Dur! The green I got for the May bluebell socks, but gave up cos two-colour knitting in the round was just too difficult, & didn't look anything like good enough. The red/purple/blue is something I had in stash since I did a pair of Jaywalkers & liked the way the colours hardly flashed, striped or pooled. The cable stood out well too. Maybe, maybe, I'll do this pattern again - with the cable up the front as well. Some time.
