Mostly socks to show this post.  First are a pair of Petty Harbour for Hubs made with Lion Brand Sock Ease Prints in Taffy.  Raverly details here.

Next was a pair of socks for me.  The pattern is Vanilla Latte, the yarn is Bernat Sox in Sari. Details here.

I used up some leftovers for ankle socks for the Christmas gift box.  The pink is ONline Supersocke 100 with some purple bits, details here.

Another pair for Hubs, he's starting to wear the toes out of a lot of his, but they are getting old, some of them.  Plain vanilla socks, the yarn is Ice Yarns Super Sock in turquoise grey, details here.

Lastly a couple of more pairs of Trigger Finger Mittens made with Briggs & Little Heritage, details here.

I've got a bunch of stuff finished, but I need to take pictures, and that's going to have to wait until after my vacation!!

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!

Final FOs of 2016

These two baby sweaters were finished for quite awhile, but I hadn't washed and blocked them or photographed them.  The first one is Little Coffee Bean Cardigan, the yarn is Patons Canadiana in winter white and grape jelly.  Ravelry details here.

The next one is Basic Cardigan from the book Cabin Fever.  The yarn is Diamond Merino Superwash DK in a mauve color.  I had enough yarn to make a hat as well, I used this pattern, details here.

I made an Exeter hat and trigger finger mittens for Hubs with Briggs & Little Heritage in dark grey. One of the dollar stores in town carries B&L, but only Heritage and Tuffy.  They sell a lot of it.  It's only $4/skein, good deal.  There's another place in town to get it, but they sell it for $5.49, I think, but they have a bigger variety.  Details here.

I whipped up two more pairs of the mitts with B&L Heritage in seafoam and brown heather.  Details here.

Happy Knitting and Happy New Year!
