A One and a Two…

Only one more week in this year’s Socktoberfest!  Do you have some last minute knits that you are working on?

Unlike the last two years, I actually was able to finish something – TWO things even! – within the confines of the month of October.  I can barely believe it myself.


My Almondine socks – a pretty pattern in an on-so-hard-to-photograph yarn!

Pattern is from Anne Hanson, and it is in the great new book Sock Knitters Master Class by Interweave Press.  My yarn was Malabrigo Sock in the Turner colorway.  It is more yellow and blue than the photo lets on.

…and my current obsession with traditional colorwork continues:

Socktoberfest :: Ilga's Stockings

These are Ilga’s Socks from Favorite Socks, designed by Nancy Bush. I used several yarns including Schoeller + Stahl, Lana Grossa Meilenweit, and Tess Designer.  The original pattern did not have the extra colorwork on the toes, but I got the idea from a fellow knitter who posted on Ravelry.  I love the result!

You can see all the details aboutthese (and my other knits!) on my Ravelry Notebook!

    Lovely knits, as always—but I am completely nuts about those colorwork socks! Beautiful color combination, and I love how you did the toes. Happy Socktober!

    Congrats on finishing TWO gorgeous sock pairs! I’m pushing it to the last minute w/ my Bacchus socks as I’ve been unfaithful with several other projects. I love Malabrigo sock yarn. You picked a lovely color and design to go with it.
