Secret Project Revealed

Anyone looking at my Ravelry page would have seen a Top Secret project awhile back.  Now all can be revealed.  It was afghan squares made for a secret afghan for redknitz.  Details and the finished project can be found here.  Blog post about it can be found here.  My squares are knit with Patons Décor in florals variagated, the stitch is called pillar stitch.  My squares details can be found here.

Got a couple of pairs of ankle socks finished for my friend, M, out of the leftover of my last couple of pairs of socks.  They are just plain old 60st vanilla socks knit on 2.5mm needles.  The yarn is Patons Stretch Sock in spearmint and grape gumball.  It was kind of annoying, the grape gumball had a knot in one of the skeins.   My leftovers didn't have any pink in it anywhere, so they matched until I got to the toes.  She doesn't care.  Details here.

Happy knitting!

.... I may have something else besides socks to show! But not today.  :)

Two pairs of plain old 60st vanilla socks knit on 2.5mm needles.  The cuff is 2x2 ribbed, but I just did plain old feet.  Heel over 30sts, toe to 20sts, both of them are knit with Patons Stretch Sock, the first pair grape gumball, the second pair spearmint.  Ravelry details here and here.

And I do have a new goodie to show, Wandering Cat Yarns Barn Cat in Johnny Jump Up.  I decided that I MUST have it for me after seeing these socks.

Happy knitting!
