Bamboozled Anklets

Well, I can't show you the pretty socks I knit while I was at the lake yet, it's the test pattern for the Knitters for Knockers - you can read more about it here and here It's a great (and very pretty) pattern and I hope everyone will donate and knit a pair. But remember the pretty hand dyed Bamboo yarn from Poppy Flower Fibers. The Man-Cub and I stretched it all out in the hotel hallway (that was a funny sight - I'm sure) so that I could divide it into two equal balls. I just made a really simple pair of toe up anklets using 60 stitches on size 2 needles. I started out with a pretty lace stitch that I found in one of my pattern books - but I pretty quickly decided against that and went back to just plain stockinette stitch as that seemed to show off the pretty hand dyed yarn the best.

I love them - they're soft and silky and just a little bit shiny.
