Project: Raspberry Wristers
Pattern: Garter Cable Wristlets
Designer: Amy Loberg
Available: FREE! from Classic Elite’s Web-Letter
Yarn: CEY Fresco in #5332 (Plum)
I saw this pattern go by in a web-letter, and knew I had to make them. Any excuse to work with Fresco! So soft and dreamy :). I have big peasant hands, so I ended up needing five repeats of the pattern (instead of just four). I was afraid I’d run out of yarn, but I had just barely enough. I’ve worn them frequently, and they are stashed in my purse for chilly rooms.
Project: Red Devonian
Designer: Laura Kanemori
Available: $6 on Ravelry, or $16 for “The Sock Report vol 1” (16 total patterns)
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in “Tiziano Red”
I’m making 5 pairs of socks for my mom, of which this is the first finished pair. She chose the yarn to match outfits she already has, and I’m choosing the patterns. I have had Devonian in my queue for a while — so pretty! It suits a tonal colorway perfectly. I did change the “start of round” in the leg so that the holes would be paired (instead of offset by a round) and the sk2p would take place at the beginning of the round (instead of spread over two rounds). Also, I used a sewn bind off instead of Jenny’s etc. Other that that — these are exactly as written.
