Here are my Thuja socks! I was inspired by Zknitter's Thuja's! I love this pattern and I loved the yarn (can you see what the colors reminded me of...I used to love these candies as a kid..bought some to show you...tried one...wow..very sweet and coconutty! Not sure I could really eat another though.). I used 2 skeins of Artyarns Supermerino (the pattern called for three...but for a man's sock, so I used a size 5 needle, made mine a bit shorter in the leg, and squeeked by...barely!).
Another peek. Rowan really wants this pair....I haven't decided if I'm going to give them up or not. I could make another using Socks That Rock heavyweight (like Zonda did!). Gee, not sure if I have any STR though...ha ha ha... Now you all know (thanks for drooling all over the pretty yarn!).
Here's my ruffle scarf! I was a busy knitter this past weekend (finished the scarf and started the socks). I used 4 skeins of Debbie Bliss alpaca silk that my Knitty Secret Pal 8 sent me. She too made a few, and her's are gorgeous using different colors. I modified the potato chip scarf like she and Jessica did (cast on 125 stitches). Love love love this scarf and the yarn makes it sooo drapey.
So what's on the needles now?? A malabrigo scarf and a pair of Log Cabin Socks from Handknit Holiday for dad (yes, the exact same pair of socks that I gave him for Christmas. Exact same yarn too.). I just finished Thuja last night, so I haven't decided if I want to pick up an old WIP, or start something new....like the Monkey socks that Zknitter just did! Yeap, I'm only doing socks if Z does them first...hehehehe. We'll see!
Happy Knitting! xoxoxo Irishgirlieknits
