My current work in progress:

1. Ashburn, designed by Melanie Berg, knit from Woolfolk Tynd in colorways 6, 7, and 8 on a 4 mm (U.S. size 6) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Catnip Socks

The Catnip socks are finished. There is much rejoicing.

I am making the pattern available as a freebie and you can get it, in pdf format, here.

There is only one size — a medium. I love the stitch motif I used for it, but discovered that it does not lend itself to being either sized up or down for other sizes. I have a purl stitch in-between each repeat of the lace motif and I could  have resized by taking out one motif and adding purl stitches for a smaller size, and keeping the number of motifs just adding purl stitches for a larger size, but I didn’t like how that looked. So I’m sending the pattern out into the world in one size only.

I am still working on Finnian’s Gansey, in case you wondered. I have the front completely done.

The body is knit in the round and then split at the beginning of the armholes and the front and back knit separately. So I’m ready to knit the back.

So I have one of my two projects off the needles. You know what that means, don’t you?

I get to cast on Girasole.

Lucy is so excited she wore herself out jumping up and down and had to take a nap.
