First FO of 2016--Circle Socks

Just completed my first FO of 2016:  Circle Socks, pattern by Anne Campbell.  I knit these for a December 2015 KAL as part of a Ravelry group, Sock Knitters Anonymous.  Their monthly challenges are a great way to try new patterns and techniques.  This particular challenge was to use self-striping yarn and a pattern that enhances the striping.

I used JoAnn Sensations Bamboo & Ewe (sadly, discontinued) in the Purple/Black striping colorway.  I really enjoyed using this yarn- it feels very nice to knit with, and also the finished project looks very nice and mostly matchy-matchy.

Currently OTN:
  • After All This Time (Heidi Nick pattern) Socks--using Hansen Hand Dyes Bounce Sock in Beauregard Blue
  • Springtastic Socks (Stefanie Goodwin-Ritter pattern)--using Madelinetosh Pashmina in Vishnu.
  • Baby mittens (Blue Sky Alpacas pattern) for Pine Ridge Reservation OB ward.
