It’s Monday and the 4th of July holiday for those of us in the United States. It’s been yet another busy weekend and holiday, but I took some time to take photos of some recent finished items.
First are the Gush Mystery socks that I finished about a week ago. These are also the first socks I’ve finished for Summer of Socks!
Pattern: Gush Mystery Socks by Yarnissima (My Ravelry project page.)
Started: June 1, 2011
Completed: June 28, 2011
Yarn: Wollmeise 80/20 Twin in WD Pistazie
Needles: US 1 (2.25mm) Knit Picks Circular
Notes: Only made one change. I needed to add some extra rows to get the proper length and adjust for my gauge difference. Instead of doing that where the pattern stated, I added those rows before I started the patterning. I like the way this works a LOT better then adding those rows where the pattern states to. Other then that, I followed the pattern. This is the second pair of mystery socks I’ve knit and I’m happy with how they turned out.
Second, I have my first Camp Loopy project done!
Pattern: Clockwork by Stephen West (My Ravelry project page.)
Started: June 15, 2011
Completed: July 2, 2011
Yarn: MadelineTosh Pashmina in Oak (just over 1 skein) and Dahlia (about 2/3 of a skein)
Needles: US 5, 32″ stainless steel circular
Notes: Followed pattern as written except for the bind off. Working the bind off as written for me made it too tight, so I did the JSSBO bind off instead.
Not much of an update, since I’ve got tons of other things I’m working on and this year’s Tour de Fleece just started, but I plan to share those with you soon! Hope those who are celebrating the holiday are having a good one and that those who aren’t have had a great weekend. 🙂
