I guess it fits in with the time of year but I spent a lot of the weekend trying to finish things that had been on the needle for quite a while and to do a project I've been meaning to do for a long time.
Berroco Sox. I love the colors, I love knitting with it and I love how they wear.
The blue pair was started one night sitting at an auction waiting for a spinning wheel to come up. I don't remember what the sock yarn is but it was an experiment of cables. I almost didn't cast on enough stitches but I think it will be better after washing. There is a large main cable running through and then a smaller, more widely spaced cable running between. Fortunately I had finished the second cuff before the socks got put away because I don't know if I would ever figure out what I was doing again!
Finally, the purse. I finished the main section of this purse was competed probably 2 years ago (using Noro Silk Garden). The plan was to felt it and do a beaded section at the top but I finally decided it looked well with these handles. I like the size and the blend of colors and the handles fit it.
One of the few blogs I follow is The Yarn Harlot - Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. She showed a picture of Fiber Trends felted clogs she'd knitted and how many giggles she got from looking at them pre-felting. I made a pair of these about 7 years ago and wore them literally until the bottoms wore out and I'd been meaning to make another pair since those were retired. Here are mine (with a shoe between to show the scale).
