Happy Fourth to all!

I have had this rainbow gradient cooling its heels in my stash since I picked it up this spring at a yarn shop closing. The siren call of this has been strong. It’s 350 yards of DK gradient glory. I just couldn’t find the right pattern of a shawl that would fit my style and show off the gorgeous rainbow. I auditioned several before I realized that the yarn dyer had a free pattern posted with this specific yarn in mind!

So let me introduce you to what will become a Summer Morning Triangle Shawl by Done Roving Yarns. I gathered the project bag, needles, and yarn….all that is left is to cast on!!

Happy Knitting!!

Cast On: Pot O Gold Vanilla Socks

I felt to need to redeem myself after my gauge (sort of) failure on my Roller Rink Disco socks. So I wound a new cake of yarn and started my next pair of vanillas!

Meet the Pot O Gold vanilla socks!

This is Tapping Tootsies by Dove Roving Yarns in the Pot O Gold color. I’ll be working a toe up vanilla sock with gusset heel. My leg may or may not be ribbed again. I reserve the right to decide later. I’m working these on a size two US needle because the yarn is on the heavier side of fingering and right now I’ve got 64 stitches total.

I think I’ll knit the foot for a couple inches and then evaluate my gauge and size to see if that needs ripped back and adjusted. I really want these to fit this time!

Happy Knitting!!
