Socktoberfest!

Hello!!!! Feels weird to write a new blog post, it's been so long! Partly the lack of posting can be blamed on Ravelry, but partly on my computer. See, a whole 1 year and 1 month after I bought my laptop (so out of manufacturer's warranty), my laptop video card went bad. And apparently this is not a good thing for laptops (not so much an issue for desktops). Anway, the fix was going to be so expensive that it made more sense to just get a new computer. But this meant, in the meantime, that I couldn't upload pictures. SOOOO, I've finally gotten around to doing so.


But this doesn't mean that I haven't been the busy little knitter. I'm happy to report that I finally blocked all my completed pieces. I've also completed a bunch of new projects. This post, though, will focus on footwear.


First up - Saartje's booties:

A work colleague just welcomed a new baby into the family. I'd been wanting a reason to try this pattern, and I have so many random leftovers in the stash. So I dug through them and came up with this. The problem is that I don't have the ballband and so don't have any idea what yarn this is. It's some cotton or cotton blend - that's about all I know. But the pattern is SOOO easy and SOOO quick - each booty represents one evening's work. I think the booties are a little big, which is good because that means the kid might actually have a chance to wear them someday. Or they'll make a great accessory for a doll.

Next up - cabled footies:


The pattern is from One Skein. I made these for my mom and plan to give them to her for her birthday next month. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Cranberry (incidentally, the exact yarn and color called for in the pattern). The only pattern modification I made was to use a smaller needle (I think the pattern calls for size 8 and I used size 6) because my mom has tiny feet. This also meant that I had a fair amount of the skein leftover.

And lastly - Jaywalkers:


Ok, so I only have 1 sock completed, but it still counts, right? The yarn is Knitpicks Memories in Cape Cod. I don't think Knitpicks sells this line of sock yarn anymore (probably not as popular since it is not machine washable). I was not initially thrilled by this colorway, but I'm actually very pleased with how it knit up. There's more green in it than I thought and than what you can see in the picture. Apparently people have had issues with the sizing of the pattern (I made the smaller size), and while it is a bit snug getting it on, it feels perfectly lovely on. I haven't cast on for the second sock yet but plan to soon.
