Here's a sneak peek at the Miss Babs yarn knit up into the test knit I did. What do you think? Not too shabby, huh? It turned out beautifully. I also finished the Hermione's socks (I haven't taken pictures of those yet either), and I started another pair. This one is for me. The pattern?
The Dragonfly Rib Sock pattern. I received it as part of my Outlander Swap, and a lovely skein of Malabrigo sock yarn. I've also been adding to my favorites right and left, since I've found the pattern highlights function in Ravelry. Have you discovered that yet? Go to the patterns page after you sign in, and over on the right hand side, just down a bit, is the "pattern highlights." It makes me want to knit forever. Well, I already do want to knit forever, but knit specific patterns forever. It gives me all the projects to make. The other cool feature I've been enjoying recently is the "recently added" under the patterns too.
Other than the socks, I did start another project (finish two, start two - keeps things even). I started an Elijah.
I want to make one for each of the children for Christmas. I hope I can get all the socks done for Christmas, plus the toys for the children, then the quilts (although if those are a little late, it's okay). I also have a couple of patterns to create, which will be available at Christmas in July at The Whole Nine Yarns. I believe it's July 21st, and it should be fun. It usually is.
I think I need a cup of tea. It's been a long week, and I'm tired. Maybe I'll knit a bit on my socks, and just relax.
