A few weeks ago we participated in our local Annual Arts Festival and had a great turnout! A lot of the knits made over the last year found new homes as well as some of the new prints created this fall. My favorite experience of the day was when a woman came up to the booth a pulled out a fingerless glove from her purse. She’d bought the pair from me at the festival a few years ago but had lost one. She liked them so much she wanted to see if I could make her another one and I was happy to accommodate the request–the gloves picture above are the result. It was fun to knit up one of the old patterns and I was even able to use a few new tricks I’ve learned since then to make them a bit better.
In addition the the gloves, the great sock race continues. Another two pairs are complete with another on the needles. The pair on the right is another pair of Cadence Socks by Very Busy Monkey, this time in the festive Vanna’s Glamour in onyx. The other pair is the pattern Brigit by Monkey Toes in Premier Yarns Serenity Sock in Woodsy Green. This pattern is simple but with twist that makes it special and the color turned out to be a nice match for the pattern.
Not much time left, but I have a few more pairs of socks I am hoping to finish by mid-December, then I plan to start working on some new patterns of my own in the new year.
