Intarsia and finished socks...


Before I go into the new project, here is the pair of socks I knitted for a friend at work. The yarn is Sockotta by Plymouth, and I think she was really happy with them. The self-patterning yarn came out just great, and I may even make a pair for myself, but not right now as I am "backlogged". A term I learned from DM.







The new project I am working on is for the new niece, and it is made with Cascade Fixation. If feels great, but it takes some getting used to as far as the knitting goes. It is a little bit like a bungee cord, and it has got a whole bunch of bounce.

This is the hem of a little dress that can be worn as a sundress, or have a blouse underneath. The intarsia parts are going to be some very simple tulips, and there will be 19 of them. Please forgive the photography as I am still a little new at that. Speaking of new, this is my first attempt at intarsia, and it is a little slow going, but not too bad.


Speaking of bad, I think I have a volunteer to try on the dress, or at least help with the knitting.

The cat does NOT look like a willing volunteer! The little dress looks like it will be very cute.

Gorgeous socks! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished dress - I'm always looking for ideas for neice pressies.
