Oh, and I'm back on them hard. They are just flying off my needles these days!
First off, I figured I should let you all know that Heart of December (Ravelry link) has been released. Here's a better picture of the socks: And here's a better view of the top of the sock, to show off the twin vines with their garter stitch leaves twining down the foot: Don't forget that you can grab the pattern over to the left or right over here. It should be turning up in my Etsy shop shortly.
As usual, here are the things you might like to know about Heart of December:
Size: Women’s Medium (or any foot/leg that is 8” in circumference.)
Gauge: 8 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.
Yarn: 2 skeins of Knit Picks Gloss (220 y / 50 g) in Dusk or the equivalent amount of any other comparable fingering weight yarn.
Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 2 (2.75 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.
Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.
Skills Needed: Knitting in the round, lace, twisted stitches, chart reading and grafting.
And because I really have no sense of when to say "when," feast your eyes on these:This is Mokira (Ravlery link), yes, another new sock! Watch for him to come out before the end of this week (before 23 November 2008, that is.) Would you believe that he's my 20th knitting pattern? I can hardly believe it, myself! I told you I didn't know when to stop!
