Okay, so here’s just a quick post of the projects I enjoyed knitting this summer.
julesy’s Anthropologie Capelet, made with JoAnn Sensations Dulcetto yarn.
It still needs a proper clasp and I’m searching for that.
Next up is Knitty’s Coronet, knit using Caron Simply Soft. My first attempt at cabling, and when I realized knitting combined in the round doesn’t work!
And finally, my first pair of socks EVAR: Knitty’s Thuja in Patons Classic Merino. I chose this pattern and yarn because I wanted something simple (but not all stocking stitch), and to use what limited yarn I had in my stash. So a quick ravelry search for worsted socks with a high rating yielded this pattern, and Voila! My first pair of socks.
These were also knitted with my friend Carol, the only friend I have in person who also knits avidly. We sat down one Saturday and knit almost the entire first sock, that’s how determined we were to learn how to knit a sock. It’s a tiny bit small, but that’s okay.
