Socks for Mom

I just finished this pair of socks for my mother. I like the way they turned out using the Evil Genius method again. The yarn is a superwash Merino/nylon blend that softens up quite nicely when washed and blocked. Mom's toes have a mind of their own and didn't grow especially straight, with two on each foot crossing over another. She never has to cross her fingers for luck, her toes have done that for her. She also has a very large big toe bone (cuneiform bone for those of you who enjoy anatomy) also known and a bunion.

Now a blanket LOL

My silk yarn arrived yesterday in the mail. I was a bit skeptical as the pic on ebay wasn't all that clear but the price I paid was great considering how much I would pay for 100% silk at the local yarn store.
Although its a 2 ply, its not a lace weight. Kinda in-between which I am happy about. It would be too thick for a night shirt.

Recent knitting

Well... I finished two pair of socks within the past couple of weeks - having joined a "12 Months, 12 Socks" knit along sponsored by WY Fiber Skeinks [a Ravelry group I'm in]. I hope to post photos soon.

The first was a plain knit pair in Austermann Step that I really liked knitting with. Very soft and great color gradations.

Mock Houndstooth Sweater

Just finished a sweater that I had been working on for a couple of months. The pattern is a mosaic one in which slipped stitches are used to create an effect. Only one colour is used in each row. I used Jamieson and Smith jumper weight Shetland wool and 3.25 needles. I used an applied I-cord for the neck opening.
