Top left is “Gentleman’s Lozenge” from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush and was my January Challenge sock. Look ma – finished on time! I used Yarntini‘s hand-dyed 100% superwash merino for these, in one of the semi-solid colourways. I love the subtle, hints of colour and the twist was perfect for all those purls in the lozenge pattern.
Bottom left is “Spey Valley” from Knitting On The Road, also by Nancy Bush. I used another “Indie” yarn for this. From RubySapphire, this is one of their hand-dyed sportweight yarns. Other than I didn’t look at my yardage before I started, these were another fun, fast knit. I love the little touch of vikkel braid – sometimes thats all it takes to “make” a pattern.
The new project for the EA Clark knitalong is the Swallowtail shawl and I’ve gathered up goodies from the stash for that project, Elann’s Baby Cashmere, don’t remember the colour, it’s a pretty Williamsburg blue. I need to get back to my Violet’s Pink Ribbon KAL sock, now that the January Challenge is finished. I’m making that one up as I go, the Lisa Souza yarn is yummy!
I noticed that my gallery has been getting a few visits – time to get some of that “construction” done 🙂 There are a couple new additions – I need to convert old photos to digital to have decent pictures – a bigger job than I anticipated! The “Non-Knitting / Other Passions” (from the Free Patterns sidebar) has been updated with some of those less than stellar photos but, until DD can give me another lesson, they’ll have to do!
