I had a three balls of Fixation left and I knitted 3 more pairs of Goodbye Summer Socks. Of course I sent two away before I took photos…one for daughter’s birthday, another for coworker who was recovering from medical treatment. Here’s the one that I did take pictures of:
Have you tried it yet? Got a spare ball of Fixation or DK yarn hanging around? Go over and get the pattern on Ravelry. It’s only $1.00!
So. Cold. Here.
The last part of October gave us temperatures in the teens and twenties! Time to pick up the knitting game a little bit more to stay warm. I came up with these leg-warmers with cables and ribbing, both of which help to keep the leg-warmers in place. They’re a fast knit because there is very little shaping. AND if you know how to cable without a cable needle, you’ll get warm legs even more quickly! Enjoy this free pattern, but remember to abide by the rules of copyright.
For once I finished my Christmas knitting way ahead of schedule, or so I thought. BUT then I remembered the socks I needed to finish for my mom and dad. I had one and a half socks knit for each of them, having just turned the heels on the second sock for each of them. So, crazy knitting ensued on December 18. Actually it wasn’t too bad because that was all I knitted on for a few days, and then they were done Yes, done by December 21!
These gray ribbed socks were for my dad, but I decided to give them to my dear husband.
My dad got a pair of tan cabled socks from me.
The socks below are for my mom:
And then I knitted these scarves for my nieces:
And I couldn’t forget my sweet little great niece (whom I rocked to sleep on Christmas Day because she was all tuckered out)! So I used this great yarn from Jojoland called Rhythm Superwash. It’s super spongy and has a ton of memory. I’ve used it on socks too, and it’s great. This pattern is called “Cute Little Buggy” and is free here on my blog!
Now I guess I’ll start next year’s knitting!
