Last night I finished the entrelac hat and scarf set:
The scarf was made earlier this year from the Easy Entrelac pattern at the Knitting Daily site, the hat pattern came from a book called Knit or Crochet. The yarn is Kauni (EJ, I think) which was leftover from my Nana's shawl and there's still plenty left over! I used US #2 needles and thought that would see the end of the yarn, but no.
Then, I cast on another pair of socks because my mother threatened to confiscate for her very own a pair of socks I made for my sister for Christmas. The Nutkin socks were a big hit and my sister loves them, unfortunately so does my mother who thought they were for her! So, to heal my mother's covetous heart I cast on a pair of Knotty or Knice Socks for her:
I'm using some yarn from one of Sock Pixie's collections, this is Jade, I think. I'm using US #2 needles and the pattern is easy enough if you know how to knit cables. The whole sock is a little fiddly, I'm not great at toe up socks and there's busy work on almost every row, but the overall effect is worth the effort. I only have a week to make them before my sister's socks are in danger of disappearing from her sock drawer!
Tomorrow I'm going to work on the sock, go on the great pattern hunt for a shawlette, and hunt for a pattern for socks to make for me since I"m down to 2 pairs of hand made socks, one for Saturday and one for Sunday. That situation needs to be rectified, really.
Happy day after Christmas to all!
