Following on the March-June FO post, there are a few more finished objects from June – three to be precise.
First up is the Indie Burgh 2014 socks, specially designed by the lovely C.C.Almon for the inaugural Indie Burgh Yarn Crawl held earlier in June this year. This pair were a test knit for the top-down version of the pattern (it comes in top-down and toe-up versions), and uses The Yarn Yard Marchmont (100% Merino) in the ‘Festive’ colourway. I completed the required first sock by the test deadline and naively thought I would ge the second finished on the day of the crawl (I was partway through the heel, so just had the remainder of the heel and the foot to go). I think in reality I managed less than 20 rows (and this was on the heel, so only short rows too). They ended up getting finished the following day instead.
Next is a very simple phone cosy I whipped up for the BF. His new work phone did not have a case and was at risk of getting stretched by keys when in his pocket. So needles and yarn to the rescue. I’m going to add a freebies page to the site, so keep an eye out for that appearing soon with this basic recipe included. The cosy used some scrap DK yarn (Drops Karisma) and 4mm needles.
And finally an unnameable project which I need to keep under wraps until October for the Glasgow School of Yarn. I can tell you two things: (1) it does have a name, I just cannot share it as it would give the game away, and (2) it uses Jamieson and Smith 2 Ply Jumper Weight.
