We got hit with another storm.
So it was a good day to finish my Ashabee Socks.
Started: November 17th
Finished: December 16th
Yarn: Ashabee FiberOasis “Eclipse” (60% Merino, 30% bamboo, 10% nylon)
Pattern: Basic top down stockinette socks
Needles: Size 1US KnitPick Harmony
Notes: I think I say this every time I use a new yarn but this is my new favourite yarn. Oh it’s so soft & lovely and makes such a wonderful pair of socks. I highly recommend Ashabee for any sock yarn – the colours are beautiful (I bought mine at Twisted but it took me quite awhile to pick a colour). And I know I’ve gushed about the Harmony needles multiple times but wow, do they make a difference. This is the smallest needles size I’ve ever used but these socks just flew off the needles. Even though these were pretty much my commuter socks, I really just wanted to finish them today (I only had like 4 inches of the foot left.) so I could start a new pair!
This was also my first Eye of Partridge heel.
I love it the look of it. I think I’ll use this a lot.
Now I really should go finish laundy so I can pack. This is what I’ve packed so far.
This is yarn & pattern for the Celtic Tote (I will do it this time!), 3 balls of Panache for a scarf, and the Tweedy Essential sock yarn. Best part? All for MEEEEEEE! 🙂
But I think I should probably pack some other items.
