Lilas Cardigan by Hilary Smith Callis
yarn: Patons Classic Wool, Dark Grey Mix
4.25 skeins: 100g/223yds each
needles: size 8
modifications: I added 3 inches to the length.
And all my socks get a lot of wear, no matter how simple or fussy! One of them has a mistake on the top of the instep that I didn't catch until I'd already kitchenered the toe. Guess no one'll notice it in my shoe :)
Cloud Nine Socks by Debbie Orr
freebie found here
size: women's med
yarn: Patons Kroy Socks, Gentry Grey
2 skeins: 50g/188yds each
needles: size 2.75mm
modifications: I knit the foot with the 2.75 needles instead of switching to larger ones like the pattern calls for...I'm glad because the sock would've been too big then. It's a touch roomy, but not annoyingly so.
I did 10 repeats for the leg because I wanted it to be just a bit longer. My usual stockinette heel and wedge toe.
Our summer has officially begun here now that school's out! And I'll be doing a stash-free summer again like the past few years :) Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods and for your sweet comments. I hope you're having a fabulous weekend and start to your summer (or winter!) too!!!
