I have finally completed the work on the Autumn Lace sock.

I couldn’t be happier. It came out exactly as I planned. I will release the pattern this Friday. Right now I am proofing the pattern. I am also knitting a pair of Autumn Lace Socks for myself.

I love the softness and warmth of this yarn.  All the details of the socks will be given on Friday on my blog, in my Etsy store AvalonsDream and my Ravelry spot.

Rhinebeck is happening this weekend and it may be the first time in a long time that I will not be able to attend. Rhinebeck is the sight of the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival.
