Another Pair Of Socks

This is a pair that I finished yesterday. I did try to match up the stripping again this time and think it came out pretty well. I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of seeing socks. I don’t post them on here for praise, but just to share my work with you guys. The guild that I’m in is starting a KAL this month for the Ten Stitch Triangle. The Ravelry link is:

Socks

This is a pair of socks that I finished a couple of days ago. Before I started knitting the socks, I was looking at the yarn and couldn’t make up my mind if I really liked it or not. I didn’t buy the yarn, if was given to me. After completing a few inches on the sock, I came to the conclusion that I did like it. I guess it just took seeing how the color combination worked up in the fabric.

Here's another pair that I finished yesterday, then washed and blocked them. The colors remind me of a shirt I had in the mid to late 80's of Alexander Julian.

7 x 7 Throw

I had a bunch of worsted weight acrylic yarn that I wanted to use up so I double stranded the yarn and used a larger needle size. This is just a 7 x 7 rib throw. The only thing I would do differently if I was knitting again would be to add an additional 7 stitches in garter on the other side. I didn't think about it and one side is stockinette and of course it wanted to curl. To finish it, I just added a single crochet stitch around the entire piece.
