I just had to open an Knitting 2011 file in my documents. How crazy is that? I've knit so many things lately I need to share more often. So many things are samples for the shop they are all around me every day and I forget that I haven't posted about them.
This great little sweater is knit out of Sirdar's Connemara Chunky. This started out as a quick sample to try out the yarn but wow, love this sweater.
Coming up very soon is The Match Factory's second run at a Knit Clinic. We're going to be doing socks this time around. This is Kertzer's basic sock recipe from their booklet #402, knit in Kertzer's On Your Toes. I'm pleased, it's a nice vanilla sock.
From the same book is the Lacy Sock, knit up in On Your Toes Bamboo. It's a nice little pattern but, I just can't get on board with the bamboo socks. The bamboo just doesn't have that bounce that yarn gives a pair of socks. If I get the second one done I think I'll wash and wear them a while and see if my opinion changes.
Happy New Year all.
