A bit of a repetitive post, it's mostly socks with repeat colors.  Got a really good deal on sock yarn, and there's a new store in town that sells all hand made stuff, and she is carrying my socks.  Sold a couple of pairs, but I only had five pairs to start with and just dropped off more today.  Got to build up the variety, lol, and I will also be taking in some of the heavy wool work socks and some felted slippers. 

All vanilla socks to start, Deborah Norville Serenity Sock Yarn, links to Ravelry details on the color name, pink sugar...

...teal tease...


Then I had a request from someone who had gotten felted slippers from me years ago to make three more ladies size large pairs.  Made with Patons Classic Wool in mainly black, yellow, navy, and chestnut brown, with odds and ends of other colors used as well (they cut back on yardage years ago, sob's).  I used to be able to knit a pair of mediums with two skeins, but now you need a contrast color or extra ball to make the cuff or you run out.  The pattern is the old faithful, Felted Clogs, details here.

Back to vanilla socks the same as those above, two more pairs of each color, spring fling...

 ...teal tease...

Something a bit different, Thujas made out of Ice Yarns Super Socks, details here.

Same yarn, but Vanilla Latte pattern, details here.

And lastly a new color for me, Patons Kroy in sunburst stripes, plain vanilla socks once again, details here.

Happy knitting!

Catch Up

 I finally got around to washing and blocking the Waverly Weekend Cowl I complete some time ago.  The yarn is Takhi Yarns Chelsea Silk, (not a fan, the yarn was given to me) Ravelry details here.

Vanilla socks made with Premier Yarns Wool Free Sock Stripes in Rainforest, details here.

 And luckily at this point in time I'm out of Caron Cakes, as these suckers are addictive.  It's the Boom! pattern with added eyelets in between the color changes.  My mods: 

Row 1: K1, kfb, k to last 2 sts, k2tog tbl 
Row 2: slip 1, knit to last 2sts, kfb, k1
K1 (yo, k2tog) for eyelet rows between color changes
The first one is Rainbow Sprinkles, details here.

Bumbleberry, details here.

Pistachio, details here.

Faerie Cake, details here.

Lastly a Pine Forest Baby Blanket, the yarn is Lion Brand Pound of Love.  I did a seed stitch border instead of a garter stitch border.  I did 8 rows at the beginning and end and 8sts on either side.  If I did it again I'd do probably 12 rows beginning and end, it's not quite wide enough, but I wasn't going to rip it back once I was about 6" into it to change it.  Details here.

Happy knitting!

First FOs of 2017

A few of the things made so far this year.  First up are some 60st vanilla ankle socks for the Christmas gift box - already! lol  Patons Kroy eclipse stripes with some coal for the heels. Would have liked to do the toes in coal, but I didn't have enough.  Ravelry details here.

A plain old pair of 64st vanilla socks for Hubs in Sandnes Garn Sisu Solids gray, details here.

A plain black Exeter hat for the hat drawer with Patons Decor.  Details here.

Another pair of ankle socks, this time a modification of the Hedera pattern.  Made for the Christmas gift box as well, the yarn is Sandnes Garn Sisu Solids in red, and yes, one toe is slightly lighter colored, I ran out of yarn and had to use the closest I had.  The intended recipient won't care, details here.

Bramble socks made with Patons Kroy, plain old 60st vanillas, details here.

And another pair of 60st vanilla socks with Kroy in greener pastures with muslin for heels and toes, details here.

Happy knitting!
