New Knits for Monday - T's Version

It's been a busy week here at Chez T's. Soccer started, my honey was away for work, my Dad's birthday and of course Mother's day.

But I've been lucky enough to finish a couple of items and move on to new things (literally).

I completed my March STR socks.

I wasn't loving the pattern for March, so I decided to go with some Bartholomew's Tantalizing Socks a la Cat Bordhi.








They are, in a word, lovely. Perhaps my loveliest socks. They fit perfectly, they are a gorgeous shade and they make my happy.

So, I'll be making more of these crazy socks. While you're knitting them, you cannot believe how the sock structure is going to work and then you make it through the heel and think "Wow. That Cat Bordhi is one crazy cat".






I also finished my Picovoli.






I love how a finished product comes together with the blocking.






It truly makes all the difference. The colors in this top scream "T". I look forward to getting a chance to wear it.

















Now I move on to my "things", and await my May STR shipment....what colors will May bring?

Your top looks fantastic! Now hopefully the weather improves so you can actually wear it, right?

The socks are indeed lovely. I can't wait to see you modelling the top.

Wow. Two excellent projects. Are those the same socks that J. knit? I am loving that pattern - so different and pretty.
