Quick post for y'all today! I've been super busy knitting on Jakson's Socks (and powering through a big mystery project which I will reveal later this Summer) so I decided to whip up a quick "instant gratification" knit. I've had my eye on Jane Cochran's pattern Thirty Eight for ages, so I decided to grab some skeins from my stash and just go for it!
My sister was so pumped about her Birthday Socks that she immediately ordered a pair for her husband! Fortunately, I'm a bit of a yarn hoarder, so I just happened to have a pile of sock yarn handy. Heh.
I gave him two tweedy color options and he chose the Cranberry Tweed.
This year, I've decided to try out more hand dyed yarns from independent retailers. My latest obsession is Tuskenknits yarn by Maria Tusken. I found her on Instagram and totally fell in love with her style. I signed up for her Beauty & the Beast Yarn Club recently and this was the second skein she dyed for me.
I hope you guys are knee deep in Pumpkins and candy bars!
I wanted to share with you a project I just finished, I'm sure you've seen the pictures all over Insta and my FB page. If you loved the yarn, or the pattern, you can find all the information in this post! Let's get started!
I made this lovely pair of fingerless mittens as a commission for a friend;
I promised y'all some Alex model shots in his new sweater. Here they are!
He's always reluctant to model for me but he does such a good job!
Isn't he adorable!?
I've been working on a fresh commission of 4 pairs of slipper socks. Two pairs of Women's size 7.5 and 2 pairs of Men's size 10.
I've been working on a fun commission for my friend Brittany. She saw this wonderful shawl I made for my Etsy shop and requested one in gray.
I always like to make my awesome big sister something amazing for her Birthday in March. This year I made her a magical Vintage-Look cable knit beanie.
