FO: Grey Chic Socks

Posted in Knitting with tags , , , on June 3, 2012 by annatestadoro

I finished the socks for the lovely Roberta at Rowantree Design on Friday and promptly posted them  off to Australia for her. I wanted to make sure to send them before our 4 day Diamond Jubilee weekend.

This is the pattern I always use and it’s really easy and straight forward, it’s just a certain number of stitches depending on the shoe size and then it knits up nicely.

I’m sure Roberta will love the socks and I do hope that they’ll keep her feet very warm in the Australian winter.

I’m currently knitting a pair of socks for the lovely Roberta at Rowantree Design. She wanted grey stripes and I managed to find this grey DROPS Fabel, which I think looks really nice.

I’m hoping to finish them both this weekend so that I can post them to her, I’m sure they’ll keep her feet toasty warm.

After my night off knitting I can show you quite a lot of progress on another purple cardigan. This is one an old friend from the boarding school I went to, ordered for her niece who has a birthday coming up in March.

This is the same pattern of the cardigan I knitted for gorgeous Isla, apart from the front where a moss stitch pattern is added on each front band, apart from that it’s all garter stitch.

It’s really easy to knit, and even though I might be becoming a little too predictable, it’s another DROPS pattern.

Now, I have to put another update on here. The lovely Roberta from Rowantree Design saw Luke’s waistcoat and ordered one from me for her grandson Rowan (the cutest little boy ever). We’ve decided to do a straight swap. Roberta designs the most beautiful baby and toddler clothes (all sewn in Australia) and she’s sending me a little romper for Luke. However, I’ve been really struggeling getting the right colour yarn for this waistcoat, but it finally arrived in the post today and I’m sooo excited to be able to start on the waistcoat when this cardigan is finished.
