X and O hat, and socks for Etsy

First up, this totally awesome hat I made for Randy. It’s my first project using two-color stranding. I’m very very pleased with how it turned out, and I think he likes it, too. The pattern is Xs and Os by Elinor Brown. The yarns are Alpaca With A Twist‘s Baby Twist in Charcoal, and Camel yarn by Nomad Yarns. Camel is remarkably soft – much softer than I would have ever dreamed.

Randy's Hat

So after I finished the hat, Randy asked if I could make him a pair of matching fingerless mitts. Ha. Well, I’ll have to get more yarn…

And next, the first of three pairs of socks for an Etsy customer. This woman asked me to knit her three pairs of socks using yarn she had dyed, to check to see how it looks when knit up into socks. The yarn on the skeins looks completely yummy. I’m not entirely sure I like how this first pair turned out – the colors just aren’t me, I guess. The pattern’s a bit strange, too – the sock foot looks completely monster. But – I tried them on, and they fit just fine. The pattern is Africa’s Socks. More about the yarn in a wee bit.
