Cables and Ribs
I have been knitting a pair of socks from the Fall 2005 Interweave Knits, and they are finished. The Cables and Ribs, knit in Mountain Colors, Mountain Goat in the Pheasant colorway. I love this yarn and I love these socks. But it will probably not be cool enough to wear them again until next fall. This yarn is just absolutely yummy.
I have been working on a few other things. I have been feeling a bit under the weather so I have been hanging out on the couch and getting a lot of knitting done.... not a lot finished, but a lot started...I do love to start new projects. I did manage to finish this dish cloth knit for a dish cloth exchange. It was a fun and quick knit. I made it out of Sugar' n' Cream cotton. I mailed it off with a few other knitting goodies today. I think it would look nice as a doily too, but it is a little heavy for that.
And also new on the needles is the Six Sox KAL sock. I am knitting it in Opal Magic. This yarn has been marinating in the sock yarn stash for quite awhile. I thought it was time to do something with it. I forgot I had it until I went through the stash this weekend and rediscovered it. The true color is a bit more blue than the picture shows
And finally, one last new start, Denmark from Nancy Bush and the KOTR KAL. I love this sock. I have made it once before for my oldest daughter, this pair is for me though. I am knitting it in King Cole Merino Blend. It is probably a little too heavy for this sock, but I like the way it is turning out. It will be very warm for next fall and winter This is such a quick knit. The next pair, and there will be another pair of these in my future will be knit in Lorna's Sport.
My DH just came home with a salad from the Bajio for me, yum, so I am going to go eat my dinner. Have a great day all!!
