I’ve been bad about blogging some of my FOs recently. My more recent projects have been 2 pairs of socks. I knit these as a present for my sister when I saw her at New Years.
These are my Monster Vesper Socks that I blogged about before. I love how the colors came together and Becky seemed very happy to get them. Here’s a scowly picture of her and my brother in law.
The two of them have an awesome blog called Peanut Butter Bagels that you can find here.
I also finished the racing sugarplum socks a while back. They were my first pair of socks for 2010 and I’ve worn them several times since completing them.
I love the sheen that the Vesper yarn seems to have with these. I knit them on a size 1 circular (magic loop method) using Wendy’s gusset heel toe up pattern as found in her book, Socks from the Toe-up. I’ve more than gotten my money’s worth out of the book and plan on making several more pairs of socks from it over the course of the Ravelry Knitalong.
I have a few more projects to blog about but not a ton of knitting has gotten done recently.
