Rainbow blanket update

This is what it looks like so far. 

Latest WIP - Business Casual socks

I think my husband really needs a lovingly made pair of handmade socks. I've only made him one other pair. He is a very good man and I'm very lucky to have him. These are made with my treasured Wollmeise in Resi colourway.


A gift for me!

The upside to husbeast travelling overseas leaving me at home with my 3yr old and 6yr old while 35 weeks pregnant:

Waterkant Socks ... finished!

Finished and I really like them. Very effective in their multi colourway.

I have this naughty skein of WD Sultan that would not play nicely no matter what I tried. Then I saw this Waterkant pattern and thought "Yes!". And it worked out really well. It's worked on a similar principal as the Strandwanderer which I really enjoyed knitting.

Of course I had to change it to FLK which was a bit of a pain because the original pattern not only had gussets but was written for 4 DPNs! Anyway, I got it after a good nights sleep.

One down, one to go.

Rainbow blanket

A friend of mine has this gorgeous blanket. I thought I'd take my chances with the Neat Ripple again and try to make one myself. I haven't crocheted in a while but the baby will be here in about 5 weeks so I best get cracking!

Spot Check socks

I was inspired by a friend's Spot Check socks so much that I had to copy her. The only difference is that I changed to the FLK heel which seems to be a standard for me :) What a warm pair of socks!
