The past few months have been rough, but although I haven't posted, I have been knitting.
Just before Thanks-giving, after a bout of hospital knitting, I finished a pair of socks. The socks, Wendy Johnson's Van Dyke Socks, shown in the photo to the right, are being modelled by the happy recipient, The BoyChild (formerly known as Mr. BigFoot). These socks were knit with Colinette Jitterbug in the Velvet Damson colorway. They were a fun, and fairly fast, knit. (As always, click on any photo to enlarge.)
Wendy Johnson pattern---her Traditional Gansey Socks. I used a gusset heel on these socks, which seems to be bigger through the ankle area, since the recipient has a problem with swelling of his feet and ankles. These socks were my Christmas present to my dad, and he likes them very much. The socks were knit using Zitron Trekking Pro Natura, in the Denim Blues colorway.
I have three finished shawls and (with some industrious knitting tonight) another pair of socks to talk about, but I'll save them for tomorrow.
Did you have a finished-object spree this month? If so, what did you finish?
