The rainy season has begun here - and with it, and abundance of knitting, I'm pleased to say.
I began "Embrace" by Kim Hargraves about a month ago (my my, where has time gone!) I'm knitting it in a divine chocolate brown - and cannot wait for it to be finished.
The yarn I am using was purchased as part of a kit, and I am glad to have found a better pattern than the one it came with. The yarn is Ecco by Zitron.(a superwash extrafine merino) And I am knitting it on size 5 needles.
The sweater has a rolled hem, and rolled edge front, is slouchy and awesome. go ahead - click on the link. It's one of those sweaters that I'll want to wear everyday.
I finished the back and both sleeves, and just began one side of the front!
I've also been knitting socks. yes. socks - lots of them
These are knit in the artichoke pattern, size one needle and I knit them of some old hand dyed yarn of mine, panda yarn that I named "raspberry lemonade" color. Comfy and fun socks.
Pair number two completed is
Here there be dragons. Love the pattern, Knit on size 2 needles = fast knit. Knit up out of Scout's Swag superwash merino color Appletini. These are a christmas gift ;-0 yup! I got a jump on the season this year!
Go ahead knit a pair.. the pattern isn't nearly as complicated as it looks at first glance!
And last but not least, current socks on the needles is Anne Hanson's Tesserae sock, knit up in my friend Lisa's superwash sock yarn, colorway Charlene.. Love it. I'm about 2/3 of the way finished with these. They make a great project for knitting while watching tv or a sports event, since its an easy pattern. (thank you anne!)
These will also be a Christmas gift ;-)
So that's my world currently - aside from a boat load of work, and monsoon like rains here.. oh.. and I bought a "REAL" bike.. did I tell you? She's a beauty.. photos next time.
