FO Friday: Purple Gusher Socks

IMG_5948

Project: Purple Gushers

Pattern: GUSH

Designer: Yarnissima

Available: €4.00 EUR on Ravelry

Yarn: CEY Alpaca Sox in “Byzantine Purple”

This is the second of five pairs of socks that I’m making for my mom.  Alpaca Sox is fuzzy and warm, and the pattern was fun.  Every row is charted on these toe-up socks, which I loved! I had a little trouble following the transition from pattern to rib at the top of the leg, and with both socks I had to fudge it a bit.  I chalk this up to a failing in my understanding of the “sizing” directions (three sizes are shown on each chart).  Cool pattern, great yarn.  Next!

CO Monday: Knitters Gone Wild

I bought new yarn on Sunday, and started making stuff right away!

With my skein of A Hundred Raves Danu in “Briar Rose,” I’m making a Trestle Cowl (changed to working in the round, rather than flat):

With my skein of A Hundred Raves Danu in “Maple,” I’m making a Greyhaven cowl — but fewer repeats and taller (for warmth).

I also cast on for pair of socks 2 of 5 for my mom — purple Alpaca Sox in the Gush pattern:
