Well I did the Tour de Sock this year. I have never done a knitting competition and I was a bit surprised at how it went. In the end I did not knit the last pair. They were not something I would ever wear or want to knit. Only ~30 people world wide finished the last pair. Here are the socks I did make and I'm pretty happy with them!
Project Details: started on August 3rd and finished on the 23rd. This is one of my favorite travel projects! I'm a bit surprised on how the colorway came out. I wasn't expecting the color really. Size 5 needles and you should make one!
Project Details: These are the first pair of socks I cast on when I got back on the sock knitting wagon! I used Hedgehog Fibres yarn (which is so soft and amazing) and this pattern. The pattern worked out well for a hand dyed yarn and so easy to knit up! Started on October 24th 2016 these have been my traveling socks. I wanted to finish them up before the tour de sock starts!!
The only this strange about the yarn is the difference in color. One sock looks more pink and the other more orange.
Project Details: Started on March 25 an finished on the 27th. Crazy fast knit with my favorite Spud & Chloe yarn. The pattern is a free pattern on Ravelry! I only used ~125 yards worth of yarn. I'm using the rest to make an adult hat for me!
I have gotten interweave for over a decade. A long long time. And this is my last issue. It no longer holds the draw it once did. I don't find myself rushing to knit stuff. I'm sad the relationship is over ... but happy to see if I can find a new magazine to fall in love with. RIP Interweave.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
