Happy Christmas Eve, y’all! I’m currently doing a bit of holiday relaxing before I head out to the family party in Gunsmoke.
I also have a few FOs to show and tell. It’s a picture heavy post, so check it out after the jump.
First up, a series of neckwarmers from the Cashmere Neckwarmer pattern.
From L-R starting at the top: Malabrigo Chunky in Noviembre (which is much better colorwise in person), Blue Sky Sport Weight Alpaca in a heathered brown (held triple). On the bottom, both are made from Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky in a wine and ivory.
This pattern was super quick and easy, and the stitch pattern looks really nice. 3 of them are holiday gifts for various people and the 4th is now Kathy’s.
I also made Quant for my aunt – it goes perfectly with the Danica scarf I made her last year, I even had enough of the same color yarn leftover to make it.
Finally, I finished a pair of socks.
These are the Thuja rib pattern with a short row heel (of which I am officially not a fan) made out of Fiesta Boomerang in Jamaican Spice – the yarn I liberated from the too-large socks I had previously made. These fit nicely, but probably would have been better with an extra pattern repeat around. Oops.
I am now working on several things, including a pair of wristwarmers I’m designing. I’m using the same Silk Garden color as my ha, so I’ll have a matching set. If they turn out nice, I’ll post the pattern.
And now I’m going to get back to the relaxing part of my day.
