FO Friday - 1/11/2013

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.

MK out.
