FO: Socks and Lettuce Knit

Have you seen my newest design, Modulation, and entered to win a free copy of the pattern? Well, what are you waiting for? Entry + info here!

First FO of university! I finished up these socks yesterday in SR Kertzer On Your Toes (from Romni) using this free pattern from Glenna C. (Rav link). While I think the pattern is great, I don’t think I’ll be using it again as I really do prefer knitting socks toe-up.

I also made a quick visit today to Lettuce Knit to check out the fantastic sale they were having this weekend! I got yarn for 2 projects:

2 balls of Rowan Purelife 4-ply cotton in the colour 748, medium indigo. At 50% off, this was only 5.50$ per ball! I’ll be using it to make a little sweater for J and L’s baby boy, due at the end of December. (Rav link)

While I only went to get yarn for the sweater (hahaha) I also picked out a ball of Berocco Vintage Colors in the colour 5218, terra cotta (Rav link). I actually didn’t pick this ball up at first when I was looking through the sale bins, but on my last look through, it caught my eye and I think it will look great as a cowl. Plus, it was only 4.50$ at 50% off! The colours remind me of fall leaves which is fitting given the time of year. In fact, I love it so much that’s it’s taken all of the willpower I have not to drop all of my work and other knitting projects to start working with it… because that’s usually not a very productive strategy to succeeding in school or finishing your Christmas knitting on time.

Hoping you all had a great weekend. Mine was lovely, despite looking like this a lot of the time…

I can’t wait to announce the winner of the giveaway… keep the entries coming!
