Sock Knitting Continues

women's size 9 - 10
March 2018
Most of the sock yarn in my stash is self-striping, and I enjoy watching the stripes reveal themselves as I knit. The stripes keep me motivated, as I will pull the yarn out of the ball and challenge myself to knit just one more stripe.

Ellen gifted this ball of yarn to me, and I love the colors. Thanks again, Ellen!

Yarn: Cascade Yarns - Heritage Prints (#22 - Fall Harvest)
           75% superwash merino, 25% nylon

Needles:  US size 2

Stitches: cuff - 64 stitches, foot 60 stitches

baby hat knit with scraps from Fall Harvest socks
I decided to use the scrap yarn immediately to knit a baby hat. Only a small bit of this yarn remains, and soon it will be combined with other bits to knit another baby hat for donation.

  9. I love those socks and that baby hat is adorable. I really do love how the stripes work in the socks and the top of that hat...well, suffice it to say that I really, really like how it turned out.
    I need to get some sock blockers. When I see how pretty yours photograph compared to the ones I posted yesterday, there is just no comparison.
    Blessings,
    Betsy
