Cast On Monday: Dancing Fringe

See my pretty purple sock yarn?  It’s Mad Tosh Sock in “Flashdance” — yum!

This week I cast on for a pair of Fringe Socks from California Revival Knits (Stephannie Tallent).

 

I’m using some ancient stash (Reynold’s Wash Day Wool in Cream) for the contrast color.  I’m about to do the the fringe bit — very cool!

FO Friday: Yar

I made something fun for the shop!

Project: Yar

Pattern: Starboard

Designer: Susan Mills

Available: $6 on Ravelry, in CE #9168 (Harbor) for $10

Yarn: CEY Seedling Handpaint in #4567

“Starboard” is a quick and fun knit, using just two hanks of soft and colorful Seedling Handpaint.  I was asked to make a store sample for the shop, and I was pleased to do so!  The cast-on edge of 135 elongated picots was … sorry to say … a bit tedious.  But, I knew that once the edge was done, the rest would be quickly completed.  I played a board game with friends while making the picots, and two hours later, I was at work on the short-row ribbed body.  I finished the next day.

Thanks to my model Eli for showing off Yar for me! 🙂
