Yesterday at knitting, group I got the nicest surprise….blogless Elise gave me a pair of socks….
Elise is an amazing knitter, and is also a wonderful designer. I had brought some sock yarn I didn’t want to the group a while ago – and she took some and gave it back to me yesterday in the form of these beautiful socks.
This is a seed stitch, cable pattern and I really love it – Elise didn’t write the pattern down, but I think I’m going to try and copy it. Elise is thinking about putting her patterns up on Ravelry – I hope she does – she’s really creative and I’d love to make her designs.
I don’t remember the name of the yarn – I bought it online. It really is very nice, and I think these socks will be perfect this winter. Thanks, Elise!
As I have mentioned, I’m trying to finish some of the WIPs I have in my knitting basket – so I finally got around to starting the second sleeve on Cobblestone….and I’m about half way done with it. I am using Cascade 220 on this sweater and I really do love it.
I read ahead in the directions for the sweater to the yoke part – with short rows. I’m a bit confused and hope that once I get there, and start doing it, it will just flow.
It has been raining here like crazy today – I’m so glad that I’m staying in. I putzed around the house for a while, made oatmeal raisin cookies – and now its time to put my feet up and finish the sleeve.
Have a great week!
