Highland Heather

Highland Heather Roving reminds me of Iris. So soft and such a pretty yarn. I think I will spin the rest of it and make a felted bag.
I ordered some other Rovings. Especially one from FatKatKnits on etsy that is just beautiful, very muted colors but I've found the perfect beads to go with it.

Secret Sister Gift

Went in to work Saturday to find a wonderful gift from my Secret Sister (wonder who it is???) for my Birthday. I had been eyeballing this at my LYS for a few weeks. What a wonderful gift. (wonder if LYS knows who Secret Sis is???)

Finished Chain Link Socks

They are finally finished!! The Chain Link Pattern was a great pattern and one that I will be using again. I got a little carried away on the foot and made it about 1/2" too long, but the fit is good using a size 0 Addi.

Chain Link Socks

This is a picture of my Chain Link Socks in progress. Trying to get them finished by the end of January. They are being knitted Magic Loop on size 0 so it is very slow going. I'm using Koigu Hand Dyed in a dark grey and red for the chains. This is a very fun pattern to do and I have plans for a few more.

Baby Cable Socks

The color on these socks are turning out so neat. The go from a very dark brown to a purple chocolate color. Going to have to put them on hold and get my Chain Links Socks finished though. The pattern is a baby cable out of the Sensational Knitted Socks book using Size 1 Magic Loop. The yarn is Collinette Hand dyed yummy!
