I’m so excited to have finished my Groovy Socks. I love them and I’m quite pleased that my stripes matched up nicely.
I’ve decided to work on more socks (surprise) and have casted on Slainte by Alice Curtis using my stash of Patons Kroy Socks in Flax.
I’ve loved this pattern since I first saw it and finally decided to order Alice’s book, Knit Your Socks on Straight .
I like to expand my knitting horizons and think this will be a fun project. Besides, I’ve not knitted socks on straight needles, so let the adventure begin!
I’m also working on a pair of socks using my stash of Opal Yarn. I love the colors in this yarn, which rather reminds me of the southwest, and decided to create my own pattern for the pair of socks. Pattern: Harris Tweed Socks by Ali Green.
The “more” part of this post is a new book by Hunter Hammersen called Fine Things for Plain Occasions. When I saw what was inside her latest publication, I knew I had to have it, so yes, it’s been ordered and I’m now waiting patiently for it to arrive in the mail.
Here you’ll find 15 patterns inspired by the advice in vintage etiquette guides. And, while the inspiration for the patterns might be vintage, the pieces themselves are delightfully timeless. The socks, hats, shawls, & cuffs offered here will all be perfect additions to your modern wardrobe.
If you would like to see what’s inside, check out Hunter’s page Fine Things Patterns. I love ever design and hope to make a few things out of this book next year.
Until next time, happy knitting!
