And while away at camp, as well as my return home, I finished a few pairs of socks. And baked some bread from a William Sonoma bread book I got at Auction (to benefit the rebuilding of the camp Chapel) at camp. It was in a lovely basket with 4 kitchen towels, hand lotion and hand soap. Made me smile!
Pattern: Citrine Socklets by Marilyn Webster in IK Holiday 2007
I made them into Stockings for my Aunt Gunborg in Sweden
Yarn: Socks that Rock Medium weight in Grimm's Willow Wren
Needles: US2 (2.75mm) 2 at once on one 40" circular
Construction: This pattern is just right to show off the lovely colors of the yarn and still add a little interest. I made them long with increases to accomodate calf size, and did a twisted k1, p1 rib. Finished off with an alternate rib BO.
Pattern: my own design, currently being test knit, currently named "Oval Lace"
Yarn: prototype knit in left over sport weight Cherry Tree Hill Merino.
Needles: US2.5 (2.75mm)
Construction: Pattern to be available in the near future - Great FUN to knit!
Pattern: Girl's Best Friend Anklets
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill SuperSock Merino in Nantucket Red. I love this yarn, it has such wonderful stitch definition!
Needles: 2 at once on one 40", US1 circular.
Construction: worked from toe-up. incorporated a k3,p1 rib on the instep. started the cuff at the ankle, so it is not a fold over anklet (anymore). Ooops, don't tell Mom about this sock, it is her Christmas gift! I think she is going to love them, they are just too cute.
