Goodness how this Summer has flown by.
I'm starting a sock knit along this month, It's a mystery knit-along so i have no idea what it will look like when i'm done. (I so enjoy these!)
So I tried to get a few of the other projects i had on my needle out of the way first.
I finished a shawl I had started for mum earlier this year, I ran out of yarn on the last 4 rows of the Shawl. (SO annoying)
So I calmly buried it in my UFO's box, till I was ready to deal with it again.
At the beginning of the month, I stumbled across a lovely little pattern "Foamy"
(I believe this link only works if you have a Ravelry account)
And it was a dream to knit up! So fun and easy to re-design a little.
And turned out quite lovely, if i do say so myself!
And Mum's quite happy with it!
It's made out of Misti Alpaca Pima Cotton & Silk. It's so lovely and soft.
I also made a pair of socks!
(I admit to casting these on.. they weren't already on the needle)
There was a lovely little challenge i stumbled upon to knit Striped socks for August and i just couldn't resist.
I did mess up a bit with them.. I cast them on at night and accidentally picked size 1 needles instead of 2's. which made them a wee bit snug fitting..
I also didn't make the foot long enough, got impatient and did the toe.
But i love them anyway!
That's all for now hopefully back soon with another update on my Obsessions!
