I completed the Orange Socks that I was making using my hand-painted sock yarn. The base yarn was Wool2Dye4 Platinum Sock Yarn. I colored the wool with Orange and Grape flavored powdered drink mixes. The pattern is the Basic Sock Pattern by Ann Budd. Pictures under the cut...
I'm working on my first vest and I'm almost at the top of the back ready for bind off.
Charlie pink & orange hat
Charlie is my nine month old granddaughter...who lives in Phoenix Arizona...where it is quite cold at the moment. I spent Christmas with her.
Okay, it's just a rectangle in garter stitch, but it felt great to bind off and weave in the last couple of ends on New Years Day.
Finally one I'm keeping for myself!
The whole scarf is done in Noro Silk Garden Colorway #47 on size 7 crystal palace bamboo needles.
I'm on my second pair of socks and strangely enough this didn't really happen on the first pair.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
