my first socks!

Two thirds of the way into my first pair of socks and I am just smitten! They are adorable little bed socks that will be perfect with a pair of clogs… If only I hadn’t given my clogs away… Guess I’ll have to get another pair!

I’m using the Turkish Bed Socks pattern by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.

Medium Longies on Purewool

I’ve been working on the medium size for my longies pattern that I’m writing up. They’re coming along very nicely in this lovely Purewool yarn. I just love knitting with Purewool! It’s so soft and squishy…. mmmm…

And speaking of my longies pattern, I’m so grateful to all of my wonderful pattern testers. Y’all are so amazing and your insight is priceless. Thank you!

Scrappies Down

Finished up the “newborn” sized scrappy longies that I was making from Mosaic Moon Cestari scraps…

Turns out this yarn is a much thicker worsted weight than the Araucania I originally wrote the pattern up in, so this pair ended up being a whole size bigger. It’s not really a problem, as the babe will probably be in smalls for a lot longer than newborns. Mostly I just have to keep it in mind for when I’m writing the patterns.

And speaking of writing patterns, I just signed up several pattern testers for this longies pattern, so the ball is really rolling now!

I also just got started on the next size up – medium.

If you’re interested in being a pattern tester for this longies pattern comment on this post and I’ll get you all set up.

Cheers!

Mosaic Moon Scrappies!

A few days ago I got some wonderful Mosaic Moon (on Cestari) yarn scraps in the mail.  And last night I couldn’t sleep, so I decided to get started on a pair of scrappy longies for Baby Moo.  I got most of the way through the waist band before I pooped out and had to go to bed.

This morning I changed my mind about using one of the Mosaic Moon colors for the trim (waist band and leg cuffs), so I found a good coordinating trim from my stash (O-Wool, in an eggplant kind of color).

I frogged the first waist band and got to about the same point on the second.  Here are the progress photos.

Longies and Shorties

Just put the finishing touches on the brown and green longies, and another pair of green shorties that I’ve been working on.

The longies are knit in Araucania with Cascade 220 trim.

And the shorties are knit in Purewool (Forest of Pines colorway) – which is quickly becoming one of my favorites… it’s so deliciously soft and fluffy!

Yarn Stash :: 1

So I have this super yummy, squishy Purewool that I really want to use, but I don’t know what to do with it!

I have three skeins. It’s like a bulky worsted weight.

Any suggestions?
