Lot's of knitting...a few FOs.
I finally finished the February 2013 Socks on March 13th, but I was out of town and didn't post last week:
I used Rainy Days and Wooly Dogs Henbane in a color called Blood Queen. The pattern is Iron Maiden Socks by Phyllis Evans. They were a fun knit, except for the fact that I had issues at the beginning - see this post.
The Rikke Hat is also complete:
The pattern is by Sarah Young. I used a 100% single-ply merino by Inca Tops, but I don't know the name of it. I don't really like single-ply yarn - unless it is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. Since it has a tight twist, it holds together quite nicely...unlike this mystery stuff. I managed to make it through though...
My donation for The New Start Project for which the DFW Fiber Fest is collecting washcloths this year is complete:
I used a cotton chenille yarn by Numei Yarns. The pattern is the diagonal garter-stitch...I don't remember the official name.
Since I didn't do a WIP Wednesday post this week, I will show you what is OTN currently.
The Purl Ridge Scarf by Stephen West, using Fiber Lady Makimo in Relaxing:
The Party Lace Scarf by Lisa Sisk, using Bollicine Sissi in a multi colorway:
The Casu Cowl by Galia Lael, using a no longer available a base by Madelinetosh in Jade:
A Summer Chills Cardigan by Danielle Reiner, using Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton in a pretty blue:
Lot's of WIPs means not so many FOs on any given week...
