just finished these socks for T, and was ready to kitchener the toes, so figured I'd try them on for fun. Not fun! they fit me, not a huge footed fella. Crap! off to the frog pond they go.
Pattern: Heavy Socks by Briggs and Little
Needles: size 3.25 mm dpns
yarn; Tresko by Sandnes Garn, colour 1003
Onto other things ... I have had a few other FOs this year (ones I am not going to have to rip).
I knit my sister a hat and cowl from Lion Brand Thick and Quick in Cilantro colourway (used just over a ball for the set), in the pattern Speedy Cable Beret by Paula Chin, and the Speedy Cable Cowl pattern she wrote as well.
I also finished the Capitain hat (pattern by Rosie Garmendia) that i cast on and nearly finished (except for the strap and seaming of the brim) back in late September -- it is pretty cute - but you'd never know it from the awful picture I have --
I've got 2 pairs of socks in progress as well as a fish hat, a Shrek hat and another Speedy Cable beret ... I think I have started the new year with a case of startitis!
Wait til I show you all the wonderful yarn I got for Christmas - Santa was good to me :)
