First the photo of the finished socks. It took me about 5 days to make the pair. And love love love them, they feel like lovely clouds on my feet.
Spurred on by the two consecutive successes I had knitting, I went to Orion to get more of Carle's sock yarn.
This is what I got, it is still in my knitting basket though, I didn't cast on yet. I also picked up a ball of Adele's Burgundy- Brown DK. The colours were nice so just got it.
When I came home I decided to make a Clapotis with it. A project I wanted to make ever since I joined Ravelry. I did a gauge sample and loved it. So I marched (literally and in the rain!) back up the mountain to Orion to get more of the red bundle of gorgeousness only to discover someone else had bought every last skein at the shop. My disappointment was short lived, and I forgot about the Clapotis the moment my gaze fell on a lovely aubergine coloured merino-cashmere-silk aran from Sublime.
Which I decided should become a February Lady Sweater. I wanted to try a top-down knit. Finally cast on last Wednesday, and am nearly done with the Yoke. But since then I have come to the conclusion that I will change the pattern. Still working it out, so you will have to bear with me, will keep you updated on my progress. For now its just a bundle of garter stitches
The clapotis had its aftermath though! Since the pattern asked for 18 stich markers and I had none, they don't sell any at Orion, so I started making some....
and got a wee bit carried away!
So I decided to do a GIVE-AWAY.
Leave a comment, tell me what you knitting at moment or what you want to do next, let me know your favorite colour (I'm sure I got every colour in the rainbow ;) )or you can also chose a mix of colours. I will draw a name next Friday (26th of June).
