Now, for the finished objects. I can only give you a peak of one because it is a gift for a pregnant friend (sort of the story of my knitting lately!)
In addition to that, I recently finished a Bainbridge Scarf out of RYC Cashsoft Aran.
I had intended to give this to my mother in law, but now that it is finished, I am not so sure it is the right style for her. I've got someone else in mind for it instead and I've got something else in mind for her.
I finally finished my Oblique Openwork Socks (pattern from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks). I made these out of a yarn I bought on clearance from Circles. It's a sport-weight Cormo wool yarn made by Running Wild Yarns. It has been in my stash for a long time because I was having a hard time deciding what I could knit with a scratchy wool. I finally knitted up a swatch and washed it. I'm glad I did because I was amazed at how much it bloomed and softened up after being washed.
After all of the plain stockinette socks I have been knitting lately, these lacework socks were a total treat to knit. The Oblique Openwork stitch pattern was easy to memorize and kept me interested while still being simple enough to knit at knitting groups and while commuting. I followed the instructions for the Eye of the Partridge heel flap and am really pleased with how that looks too. These were socks that I immediately tried them on, admired them and then thrusted them in Paul's face while declaring them to be "SO PRETTY!!".
You might notice that I was a bit skimpy on my project details this time around. I'm thinking that it isn't necessary for me to post so many details on my blog now that I put even more detail into my Ravelry entries. I'd rather not double up the efforts by posting the project specs in two places especially since a lot of my blog readers don't give a darn whether I knit my socks on 2 circs or on dpns. Any objections?
