I just finished this pair of Aquitanes today. They are the first items dedicated as Christmas 2012. I cast on last week an blew through them in less than a week. I love this pattern by Sivia Harding. I joined her Mezzaluna Shawl club last week too. Every other month she will send a kit with one of her beaded shawl patterns complete with beads and yarn from Indie dyers. It starts in August, I can't wait! If you've never knitted one of her patterns, you simply must. They are well written--a joy to knit. I made a list of all the projects I have on the needles in order to figure out what order I should finish-there also is a list of things I am itching to cast on. I wound yarn for an Anemone hat. I have these socks underway to0---
I am knitting these for a friend in Iowa. The
one on the left, with the brown stripes was knitted first, up to this point. Then I mailed it to her so she could check the circumference,
length and fit of the heel. She mailed it back to me, and I knitted the blue one with the
changes. I mailed it to her to double check the fit. In the interim I started the mates for these two, as shown below.
Yup, as you might observe, I am knitting them two at once on one circ. Once I get them up through the heels they will be caught up with their mates. Should be good fora few comments when I knit on them out in the real world.
What do you have on your needles?
