Shoulders and Toes

Thank you very much for all the lovely comments on Bargello Basics. I often second guess myself when changing colours in a design, but I really think I got it right with that one.

Today I have two knitting finishes to share. The first is Country Walk Cape by Suzanne Sullivan (pattern available on Ravelry).

The yarn is Mary Maxim Starlette in colour light gray, and it took nearly every scrap of three balls. I still need to find a nice button for the closure, and it also needs to be washed and properly blocked. It is just delightful, though, and will make a nice cape to put over my shoulders when sitting outside in the early fall.

I made a few minor changes while knitting this, and found a couple of small errors in the pattern. All my notes can be found on my Ravelry project page.

The second project I finished is my Herringbone Eyelet Socks, which I began back in March when I went on my cruise.

They are knit from super stretchy Cascade Fixation, which is why they look a little small. The colourway is Purple (surprise!), and the pattern is available for free. I did only two repeats on the leg since I like short socks.

One the needles right now are another pair of socks (surprise!) that I am knitting as part of a summer-long knit-along with prizes, a very simple scarf knit on the bias using some fabulous linen yarn, and a crocheted throw rug for the kitchen. The Isle of Trucks sweater has been returned to  its knitting bag, to await the arrival of more yarn.

    Love the cape and socks. Looked at the pattern for the cape and think I may actually make the shawl for myself. Now just need to find the time.
