Guess I'll start with finished projects for todays post. I have quite a few of those. Then I can cover new projects and goodies in the next post.
First up is my cashmere cowl.
I used Zen Yarn Garden Cashmere DK, colorway Truffles and the pattern is the Marvel Cowl (ravelry)(non ravelry). I had to add a few extra pattern repeats because the cowl was coming out to small. It's super warm and of course the weather has been warm so I haven't gotten a chance to wear it.
My Rainbow Baby Cable Rib Socks.
I really like how these turned out. The yarn is Paca Peds with the heel and toe yarn, colorway Tye Dye. I actually had more then enough yarn to knit the cuff too but I worked a short row heel instead of a heel flap. The pattern is the Baby Cable Ribbing from Sensational Knitted Socks. I worked this toe up, toe at a time. There's enough yarn left to make some shortie socks for Kaity.
I finished my toe up bamboo socks.
These were knit using Regia bamboo sock yarn. I can't remember the colorway and frankly I'm to lazy busy to look it up. They're just a basic toe up sock with stockinette foot, short row heel, and k2, p2 ribbing on the leg. The Regia bamboo was nice to knit with although it was a tad splitty. I haven't found a non wool sock yarn that isn't a tad splitty.
My Sweet Lime Monkey socks.
These were knit for the April Makin' Cookies KAL. I've knit this pattern several times but never for myself so I figured it was about time to make a pair of Monkeys for myself. The yarn is Yarn Pirate merino/bamboo/nylon sock yarn. The colorway is one of the Booty club colors called Sweet Lime. I bought it from someone who was destashing on Ravelry. I love how the yarn striped with this pattern.
Simple Garter Stitch Shawl called Mara.
This was my test knit for Madelinetosh. Kaity was kind enough to help me model it for pictures. It's a comfy garter stitch shawl with a simple ribbing. The pattern should be available soon. It uses 3 skeins of Tosh worsted and is super comfy.
Fauxbious test knit for Woolgirl.
This was the first shipment for the Woolgirl lace club. I test knit it awhile back. The yarn is Malabrigo Lace.
Easter egg dishcloth.
This was the 1 April KAL cloth for the Monthly Dishcloth KAL group.
I think this sums up most of the things I've finished here in the past few weeks. I'll leave you with my little princess modeling the new tank top her grandma (my mom) made her. She loves it!
