Recent Finished Objects (FOs)

Recent Finished Objects (FOs)

A couple of weeks ago, I finished knitting and mailed off the birthday presents for my friend, Barb and her eldest daughter. I made the Mountain Path Socks for Barb using 1 skein of my Merino Single Ply Fingering yarn in the Marmalade colourway. I knit the first sock back in June when I was test knitting the pattern and then I put them aside while I moved on to more urgent projects. My friend, Barb, loves hand-knit socks so when I was deciding...

My New WIP (work-in-progress)

My New WIP (work-in-progress)

I remembered seeing a shawl that would fit the bill in one of my Jane Austen Knits magazines. I found the Margaret Dashwood Shawl in the Summer 2012 issue and I decided it was exactly what I was looking for. I went looking in my stash and I found some skeins of Noro Silk Garden Sock...

I used 4 skeins with 1 less repeat wide for the orange one (colourway – Orange Julius) for the younger girl. I used 5 skeins for the...
