I have some projects to show you that I finished right at the end of the year.
First, I present the November 2012 Socks:
I used the Catherine pattern and I liked it. I used Lyndon Hill by Bristol Yarn Gallery. It is a luscious yarn - mostly cotton with some silk - and unfortunately, not the best choice for socks. See how the leg is a little droopy. It doesn't look like that when it is on, but socks really do better with yarns that have some memory. Lesson learned.
I also made a cowl out of one of the skeins of Tosh Merino Light in Oceana that I inadvertantly hoarded in my quest to make the Lazy Girl Shawl:
I wanted to make a Summer Wind cowl, but didn't have the pattern; so, I winged it.
I think it's close enough.
I have four things OTN right now:
Elderflower Wine socks - using the luscious Black Sheep Dyeworks Sock Weight Superwash Merino in a gorgeous color called Plumberry.
Baby Blizzard cardi - using Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic DK leftovers from another baby cardi that I've made. The color is Peony.
Lava Flow Cowl - using a skein of Madelinetosh Tosh DK leftover from a sweater I've made in the Moorland colorway.
Party Lace Scarf - using a skein of a light fingering weight mohair/nylon blend called Sissi by Bollicine.
