I’ve been knitting away at all kinds of things, mostly Christmas presents, so I sadly can’t show you most of my WiPs or recent FOs.
Now that I finished up my sock pattern and published it (see here!), I have a new design on paper and on the needles – this time for a shawl. But I also have a new sweater design kicking around in my head. (My other sweater design is going to have to wait a little while – it’s quite complicated, so figuring out the sizes and grading and writing the pattern is going to be quite a challenge.) I wish I had more time, or some clones or something, so I could work on more than one design at a time! 🙂
I few days ago finished a pair of socks for me:
I’m so glad they’re done, because they are so comfy!! And now that the weather has started to get cooler I can actually wear them!
Pattern: William’s Socks Expanded by me!
Yarn: Crazy 4 Dyeing JollySock in color Ring of Fire
Needles: US 2
Started: March 8
Finished: October 22
I’ve also pulled out my two at a time socks to try to finish these:
I’m planning on adding afterthought heels to them once I’m done with the legs (hopefully I’ll have enough yarn to do the heels without having to do solid colored heels – I really want to get the ‘bullseye’ look that you get with an afterthought heel and self-striping yarn.)
And I’m rewarding myself for getting 1/2 of my Christmas knitting done (yay! just a few things left to knit!) by casting on today for a Linen Stitch scarf:
I bought the yarn and the pattern at the TKGA conference in Greensboro last month and am itching to start it, so it’ll be going on the needles tonight!
