Pattern: Zephyr Girls Rusted Root, size small
Yarn: Cascade Sierra in Charcoal
Needles: Size 7 addis
Time: a little over 2 weeks
Mods: Started with neck ribbing instead of picking up stitches, and made the bottom ribbing a little shorter.
I had a lot of fun with this pattern - it went pretty quick, and I loved the yarn (although I think it was improperly named - chocolate would be better, don't you think?)
I'm still working on my Monkey socks - I'm starting the gusset decreases on the second one now. I still can't get over how perfect the yarn is for the pattern. I am babysitting tonight, and should make good progress once the kids are in bed.My family recently went to New York to visit my Mom's family. I was unable to go, what with moving and work. Maybe next time. However, my Grandma, a former knitter, sent me a big box of fun! :) She sent a very cool vintage project basket, and a ton of vintage needles, hooks and notions. I have had so much fun playing with them. Well, I'm off to search for a birthday gift for my Mom...any ideas?
