Another soft cowl

100% Mohair. So light, yet warm. Made this a long time ago, and am still enjoying it. My own pattern with leftover mohair.

Socks on the Beach

These socks traveled with me over Thanksgiving.... They were done on one long circular needle. Pattern adapted from the book "Tops & Toes." 100% washable wool. Lace ribbing kept it interesting, a delight to make!
And a joy to wear. Here, doing what they do best....
Close-up of the lace ribbing. I can get away with this because winter is never too cold here in wine country. I mean, we can wear flip-flops in the winter!
Yaje loves them too.
It wouldn't be my handywork if they were identical. As you can see, I ran out of yarn on the second one. Luckily I had some suitable scraps lying around. All the easier to tell right from left.

Back with many new projects.

Since it has been awhile, I have a lot of catching up to do! I will post the projects I have completed since the last post. There are many! I have been a much more productive knitter than blogger.... First, the Lotus Blossom tank.

I love this tank, and wore it many times this summer. The champagne color makes it a little dressy. It is 100% cotton, so it drapes nicely and feels wonderful. I probably could have made a larger size, but hanging it to dry (gasp!) stretches it out enough. Overall, I love this garment and plan to get much use out of it.
