Name that Title!

So, as you will remember (I hope), I was spinning to make myself a nice, light, summer cardi.

With my track record of late, I bet you thought it was tossed into a dark, musty corner, never to see the light of day again.

HA!



It is done and I love it!



Pattern: Featherweight Cardigan A.K.A. Handspun Lightweight Cardigan

Designer: Hannah Fettig

Yarn: Approximately 1208 yards/1104 metres of my own handspun using Halfbred Wool Slivers in Black All Sorts from Aurelia Wool & Weaving.

Needles: 4.00mm

Size: 43"

Next on the list was finishing up G's socks...just in time for the heatwave! See how much I love you, G?



Pattern: My own basic cuff down sock

Yarn: DGB Confetti Superwash - Colour 100.206

Needles: 2.25mm

Then it was time to think about Father's Day, so I knit up these for my husband using the yarn he bought me for Mother's Day...and again, just in time for the heat of summer!



Pattern: My own basic cuff down sock

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock multi in Tuscany

Needles: 2.25mm

You'd think I'd be over knitting socks and ready to plunge into something lacy, perhaps?

Nope.

I wanted to plunge into - hmmm, just had a graphic mental image - (insert head shake here) my May Rockin' sock club kit.





Pattern: Fraggle Squiggle Socks - May 2009 kit for the Rockin' Sock Club

Designer: JC Briar

Yarn: Socks that Rock Lightweight in Pepe La Plume

Needles: 2.50mm

and that is what I'm currently concentrating on. You'll be thrilled to know that I must knit 8 or 9 pair of plain ole vanilla socks for Christmas gifts. If anything, the boredom of seeing plain ole vanilla socks will be counteracted by the brilliance of their colours. *snort*

Knit On...

How funny to stumble onto your site! You saved me when I was doing the Rogue Roses socks! I was not even close in my interpretation of how to do the rosebuds. Then I found your video on YouTube. Here are mine.

The only reason they're done is because of your video. Thank you!!
