Here are my first socks for Sock-a-Month 3:
They are knit in Lana Grossa Meilenweit 6 ply, so they are thick and cosy. The pattern is my own. Toe-up with a round toe from Sensational Knitted Socks, increase to 48 stitches and a short row heel from Wendy Knits. The rib is 4k 2p, and for the cuff I did a twisted 1k 1p rib. Finished with a sewn cast-off. I used 3.25 mm Brittany birch dpn's.
These are the first socks I've finished for my fiance (not the first ones I started, alas!) and when he put them on he didn't want to take them off again. So I think they are ok!
My Baudelaires has been on hold for a while, but they are next in line. Here's the second one:
The Baby Surprise Jacket is looking stranger for every row:
And I've started a new sweater! My first adult size sweater in many years. It's a top-down raglan cardigan using Cosmic Pluto's recipe. I'm using Cascade 220 in a sort of heathered petrol blue , quite nice. I haven't used this yarn before but so far I like it.
I went to a quilting class yesterday. I haven't quilted in ages but this was really fun. Take one patterned fabric with long repeats:
Put six identical pieces on top of each other and cut equilateral triangles. Sew them together and get this:
Great fun, all the block turn out different and it's virtually impossible to guess the outcome. As always, me and mom where the only ones with bolder fabrics, all the others in the class had pretty little pastels... Oh well.
