Where to start? I have cast on many projects, so there much to share. First, I have been in LOVE with the toasty twist sock pattern forever! I just wanted to find the right skein. I found this beauty while visiting a friend Chicago! Now, I am all set to start knitting.
Stray Cat Self Stripping Yarns for a long time. My friend and I bought some yarn and decided to work the Mystik Spiral Sock pattern.
This project is challenging. I had to rewrite the pattern for a smaller foot size and learn how to make German Short Rows (best youtube video here. ) I am not fond of how the short rows look but I love the pattern so much, I am starting to not care. Plus, the stripes look super cute in my opinion.... Moving on....
I started the Duotone Cowl for myself as well. I had way to many socks on needles and needed something with a bigger needle to work on. I love love love these colors. I wanted to step out of the box and try something not in my normal color scheme and this project is it.
