Cast-On Monday: Pretty Ginger Socks, Chateau Clapotis

I finished a pair of socks for myself last week, so it’s back to the “socks for mom” project. I cast on for pair #4 on Saturday, using Sock Tosh in Ginger and following Fosco’s Pret-Pret-Pretties pattern (by Heather Ordover). I’m looking forward to learning the Welsh Heel!

I also bought three skeins of Chateau in a lovely soft pink. I’m making a scarf-width Clapotis for my MIL for Christmas. Don’t tell! 😉

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!
