Hand knitted sugar coating socks

I got this wool as a thank you for designing some wedding invitations. Not neccessary I would say, but who would say no to this wool from Hedgehock fibres? Not me!
I had to use it instantly. The quality is great and the coulours are just amazing.
I decided for the Glady pattern and started with 72 stitche: I  repeated the second pattern 8 times before starting with the heel. For the foot the repeat was 13 times.

Quick and easy handknitted boardwalk hat

8k

When I was in Cape Town visiting the store of cowgirlblues I couldn’t resist: I had to buy more than just one of their beautiful skeins. I wasn’t sure what to knit back then but back home I decided that the skeins are just perfect for some new hats. For the Sage I wanted a very easy pattern in order to let the colours be the centre of attention. I chose the boardwalk pattern from Elizabeth Pedersen and I was able to finish the hat within three evenings. Despite other knitters complaining that there was a need to adjust the pattern a little to make the hat big enough I had no problems at all – there was no need to change anything and it fits perfectly. For everybody who wants to try – do it! And the best thing: this pattern is even fro free. 🙂
