Progress



Look! I finished something!

I knit a scarf. A simple scarf in linen stitch with Double Sea Silk I had just lying around. And it is just lovely, if I do say so. I really like linen stitch for it's texture, especially with multicoloured yarns, and it's firm fabric. I would knit scarves like this for the men or women if I were really motivated.
And it looks good.

I'm also working my way through my sock club. This installment is the Fountain Foxglove by Cat Bordhi in Twist of Fate yarn made of wool and seacell. It has a lovely sheen. These socks have a very high instep. It fits nicely but I'm not sure they're for me.

Do you like my sock blockers? They were made by a friend's brother and I just love them. They are solid with nicely finished and rounded edges and I love that they were made my someone's hands to block the socks made by my hands.

Love that scarf - such a beautiful shimmer. And the socks and blockers look good. You can't beat a good Bordhi sock!

I'm glad that you liked the sock blockers. They didn't take him too long to whip up before we went to visit Lauren.
