I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas spent with friends and family. Ours was very quiet, which gave me the time to knit and catch up a few WIPs.
It only took me six months, but I am happy to report I finally finished my Calla Lilly Tweeds and finished my goal of knitting 4 pair of socks for the year! It really felt good finishing up a very old WIP.
Pattern: Harris Tweed Socks by Ali Green pattern
Materials: For this project, I used two skeins of Paton’s Kroy Socks FX in Calla Lilly and two 16″ circular needles size US 1½ (2.5 mm).
Modifications: I casted on 64 stitches in place of 60 stitches for a more comfy pair of socks.
I’m now working on my Top Down Swing Pullover designed by Diane Soucy and have almost reached the bottom to start the ribbing. This sweater is going to be wonderful for the weekends and I look forward to wearing it soon! For this project I’m stash busting and using my Patons Classic Merino in Denim Marl.
You may recall I mentioned that I was spinning my stash of FatCatKnits Merino Wool in the colorway Much Verde and my stash of Cupcake BFL in Winter Lake. I finished both and now have started to ply these two bobbins together. I love the way the colors are blending and I think once plied I’ll have a nice tweedy looking fiber that will be nice for a shawl.
What have you been able to finish up for the year?
