Hi! How's everyone been these past few days? Sorry about missing last week..... I had so much going on that it totally slipped my mind to come say hi!
This week I'm alternating between two projects. One is a test knit for a gorgeous shawl that I can't wait to show you once the pattern has been released. The other is a sock.
I was loving working with my 9" circular needle for this sock. It made knitting so much easier without having to "tame the octopus legs" I normally have to do when working with DPNs. My 9" broke. Happy I am not. But then I remembered I had two 16" Addis in the same size, so I switched over to using two circular needles. I LOVE IT. Seriously, why have I resisted this technique for so long? This is my absolute favorite way (so far) of knitting socks. And aren't they pretty?
I'm using Premier Yarns Serenity Garden in Crocus. I love how the colors are coming out! I'm using the Malachite Butterfly Socks pattern by Verybusymonkey. I love the pattern! I am going to have to do a contrasting heel and toe, as I don't have enough yarn, I think, to have it all in the same yarn. I would have done a contrasting cuff as well, but someone (ahem, looking at you, (said to the me in the mirror) ) didn't notice the difference in yardage until she had already cast on and did the cuff. I might even have to rip out the cuff later on..... But I'm not going to worry about that until I get there..
What about you? What have you been working on? Don't forget to take a peak at Tami's Amis for more WIP Wednesday posts.
