1. Lang Yarns Jawoll Superwash in a dark green. I think I will use this for one of the sock patterns in "Knitting Vintage Socks" from Nancy Bush.
2. Berroco Comfort Sock - I have not used this yarn before, but it only cost $7 for a skein and it feels so soft!
3. Wildfoote in Rhapsody. I am making a pair of socks in Wildfoote at the moment and really like it, this color was really cool (hard to see in the photo) so I wanted to grab it before it dissapeared.
Here's what I've been knitting:
The above sock is knit in Panda Cotton, color "Roses" and I got it in a swap. I found this pattern on the Crystal Palace website, Menehune Socks. I think it might be because the gauge is so small (9 sts per inch) that is is taking me so long to knit these. Also I am knitting them on 1.5 Harmony Needles and I am a really tight knitter, so I think its slow going because I am concerned I will snap the wood, LOL!
These are the other socks that I am making in Wildfoote, the pattern is Magic Lace Rib by Natalie Wilson. I really like the pattern, its very pretty, but not so complicated that's its too much for TV knitting. I started the second one and hope to have them done at the same time.
This is the hat I am making for a class I am taking at my LYS. There is only one class meeting left. This yarn I also got in a swap and its working very well for this pattern. We learned how to make left and right leaning decreases on the ear flaps so that it comes out uniform. I also learned how to cast on and knit in pieces already done. I hope to be able to knit enough to get to the end or close to for the last class on Wednesday night so that it will be finished.
