Fangorn Forest Socks finished!

They're done! This is my first pair of socks for 2021 and I'm quite happy with them. The yarn was an xmas gift from the spouse and I adore it. It is from Holly Press Fibers in the colorway "Cliffs of Insanity". The pattern is Fangorn Forest Socks and it was very fun to knit.... Continue Reading →

Fangorn Forest Socks progress (2)

I decided to split the difference between the leg length this pattern suggests and my usual sock length. Over the weekend I finished the leg and moved the socks onto different needles to start on the heels. The heel flap on the first sock is done, and I'm a few rows in on the second....

Fangorn Forest Socks progress

I haven't been working on these as much as I would like, but I'm still making steady progress. My multiple hat cast ons were too distracting. I am excited to dig back into these more over the weekend. They're just about ready for the heel flap according to the pattern, but I might add a... Continue Reading →

Hoar Frost Socks finished!

All done! It feels strange but great to get two pairs of socks finished within a few days. The last bits of these socks just flew off the needles. I enjoyed being back to two-at-a-time after the slower intarsia in the round of my Pride socks. I absolutely adore the yarn + pattern combination here.... Continue Reading →

Hoar Frost Socks progress (6)

As you can see, I did not meet my goal of finishing these over the weekend. I made a ton of progress, but still have a few inches of the foot and toe left to go. I've been getting a bit frustrated with them, mostly because I've been trying to rush through them so I... Continue Reading →

Hoar Frost Socks progress (5)

Watching other folks post about their rainbow socks is bringing me some joy while mine are on hold. In the meantime I've been pushing ahead on these. I was hoping to get the heel turn finished but there was not quite enough time. I've mostly done the heel flap and will get the rest before... Continue Reading →

Hoar Frost Socks progress (4)

As you can see, I decided to go ahead and keep working on my Hoar Frost socks to get them off the needles. The good news is that I will finish the leg today so I don't have to worry about the pattern on the back anymore. This is just one of those patterns that... Continue Reading →

Hoar Frost Socks progress (3)

I reached a bit of a mental impasse. I need to decide if I want to move the Hoar Frost project onto waste yarn or a spare cable so I can reclaim the needles like I had originally planned. Otherwise I need to set the Pride socks away until the Hoar Frosts are done. Both... Continue Reading →

Harmonize Shawl finished!

It's done it's done it's done!! I finished it on Thursday night, just in time to count for my monthly goals. It's not blocked yet, unfortunately, since all my blocking supplies are at the other house. Hopefully I'll get a chance to run over there within the next few weeks and grab them so I...

Harmonize Shawl progress (29)

I finished the last of the lace! If you look closely you can see that I have started another 2-color section instead of finishing according to the pattern. I decided I couldn't stand to leave that purple yarn unused when I (probably) have enough to do another section. I am winging it a bit because... Continue Reading →

Harmonize Shawl progress (28)

The shawl is moving forward much more easily now that all the cables are done. The current lace section is already almost half finished. I'm leaning toward adding an extra section to bring the lovely purple yarn back in one more time. On the one hand I'm eager to be finished, but on the other... Continue Reading →
