Finished Projects

Lynn finished a very pretty pair of socks. The pattern is called Embossed Leaves (purchased on Ravelry). It is one of her favourite patterns. She used one skein of Twist Sock from Hedgehog. A sad story about her second sock. She was almost finished when she found a mistake so she ripped out the whole sock and started again. The good part of her sad story. She commented that when the yarn was rolled back into the ball you couldn't tell that it had already been knit. Sometimes the yarn is kinky. Not Twist Sock.

The socks are a very good example about why you should block. The lace pattern lies flat. It makes a big difference.

Beth finished Valanar (pattern purchased on Ravelry) with one skein of tosh vintage. We were worried that the cables wouldn't show up in this colour (Electric Rainbow) but they do.

Six more rows of lace and then I'm onto the garter section. That means the next colour gets to play.
