Whew! It’s been busy around here – I can’t believe it’s been an entire month since I last updated! I was finally coming out of the first trimester blahs when there was a sudden death of an extended family member. Fortunately, my husband was able to move things around, and we all made it back to the States in 12-ish hours of flying. And fortunately for me, two long days of flying in less than a week means lots of knitting time!! 🙂 I started on a beautiful shawl with some yarn that I have been hoarding for a while, but that will be a work in progress for some time. So instead I have three pairs of adorable tiny socks to show you.
The pattern is Perfect Fit Newborn Socks and I used a beautiful colorway from Madelinetosh called Sausage, Chard and Lemon Lasagna. It’s actually kind of funny – I started out to make one, maybe two pairs. By the time I finished the fourth sock, I could only find three. So of course I made another, then found the missing sock…. and then I had five. So my pregnant brain ended up with six socks in the end. They are not perfect, but with every sock I could see my technique improving bit by bit – and that’s encouraging!
I’ve also finished two Harvest sweaters for gifts and decided to give them to other people – leaving two, possibly three more baby gifts to knit! 🙂
Those are my finished projects for the past month. Everything else is a work in progress which I will share soon – it won’t be another month, I promise 🙂
