New Socks!

I finally finished the pair of travel socks I’ve been working on for the past 2ish years! I even had them while on our honeymoon in Niagara Falls – see:

Travel Sock in Niagara Falls

and now they’re done!

Travel socks are finished! 2 years in the making ;) #knitting #SITTM

Project Details:

Pattern Name: No name, just toe-up socks with a short-row heel

Yarn: Handspun by me – it started as Spunky Eclectic fiber. Rolling Hills colorway, I think? Possibly BFL?

Needle Size: Size 1 Knitpicks Circs

Time Knit: Started in 2010, finished October 14, 2012

I’ll be wearing these at Rhinebeck along with my Effortless! (uh oh I need photos of that, too)

 



Mittens!

Last winter, after shoveling the driveway for the zillionth time (remember last winter when we had that weird frozen stuff all over?), R requested a pair of mittens to help keep his hands from freezing off.  I haven’t knit many mittens – I guess we just aren’t a ‘mitten’ family – but I can’t say no when he requests something specific like that.

So, not only did he get mittens, he got mittens knit from handspun:

Mittens !

I think he likes them. ;o)

Hope you all have a great weekend – rumor has it we’re getting a dusting of the white stuff tonight, I can’t wait! I’m sick of this brown winter!

 



FO: Hat for Winky!

So it begins…aren’t grandmas supposed to churn out the handknits for their grandchildren? ;o)

It only took me two days – there’s something to be said for knitting for small children!  Back view:
