First there is June Sockdown 08 Design Your Own Pattern:
Stats: Yarn, Lime & Violet Sasquatch Sock Blender Frog, I am calling this pattern…Blended Frog Scallopini after the yarn color name and the Basic Scallop pattern. I got the pattern from 365 Knitting Stitches Perpetual Calendar. I am using KP Fixed Circs size US 1 Magic Loop. The pattrn is easy to memorize and the yarn is great to work with! I will definitally be purchasing more of it!!
Second is the Patons Stretch Sock Test pattern for Brian, I am having to fit the sock as I go to make sure that it will fit his feet.
The yarn as I stated in an earlier post works up like KP Risata due to the fiver and elastic content. I seems a bit rougher bit should soften up nicely in the wash. I am using Size 1 KP fixed Circs for this also Magic Looped. So far he is liking the fit!
Last but not least:
Meet Illusions by Laura over at Fiber Dreams. I am test knitting this pattern to see how her patterns and Ray’s yarn work together. This particular yarn is one of his Test Dyes for different techniques and isnt showing the patterb as well as I would like but I will reserve Judgement until it is done. Most likely I will need to use one of his Fades for this pattern, or a darker semi-solid but again we will see :-) I am using KP Size 1 DPNs to get the gauge she specifies. I am enjoying the pattern so far and I cant wait to knit more of her patterns as well as offering them for sale in the Knit-n-Stitch!!!
Thats all of the pictures for now, am off to post them on Ravelry. WIll see ya again tomorrow hopefully earlier than today!! Sorry for the absence Brian has been using my computer in the afternoon the last couple of days since the 14yr old doesnt like to give up the other one :-)
Have a Nice Nite all and I’ll see ya tomorrow!
