sari for lack of posting recently, but here’s updates on some current projects:
pattern: Baby Cable Rib by Charlene Schurch (from Sensational Knitted Socks)
yarn: Regia Line Steps Color shade 5371 Granite
needles: 2.5 mm bamboo dpns
Finished at last, after being on the needles for over 2 months. I don’t think I’ve ever taken so long to complete a pair of socks, they were sidelined by the pressures of various presents. I like this pattern and will probably make it again, good for man socks (just don’t tell them the name of the stitch pattern has ‘baby’ in it).
pattern: based on Easy Peasy Catnip Mouse Toy by Meelai
yarn: Patons UK Spirit, shade 4503 Bracken
hook: 5 mm
Because Sparky seemed to like playing with soft toys as big as himself
Shap Blue Socks
We went to Rivington again this weekend and I got some knitting done under a tree in the Japanese garden.
Body & sleeves finished, now just the button bands to do (ugh) and the sleeves to seam (once I’ve learned mattress stitch). I have gnawing doubts about the fit but won’t find out until it’s all blocked …. fingers crossed.
