hello!

I am back from vacation!! I can't wait to share my photos and stories with all of you... but I'm warning you that it will be a beast of a post :))))

In the meantime, I'll share two recent finished objects.


Blueberry Waffle socks

Pattern: Blueberry Waffle Socks by Sandy Turner
Yarn: Cakewalk Yarn in colorway Cherry Blossom
Needles: Magic Loop 2.25 mm
Modifications: I knit these socks toe-up in fingering weight yarn, rather than sport. 64 stitches.

This is pair six of thirteen that I hope to knit this year :)

I love this yarn. And I can't wait to get my hands on more.

Originally, I started vanilla socks with the yarn, but realized I wanted something else. I am really glad I frogged and knit this pattern instead. Don't get me wrong; I swoon over the plain vanillas on Ravelry knit in Cherry Blossom. This yarn is gorgeous in any pattern.



Whitecaps Hat

Pattern: Whitecaps Hat by Emily Wessel
Yarn: Malabrigo Chunky in colorway Bobby Blue
Needles: Magic Loop 4.5 mm and 5.0 mm
Modifications: none! Though, I might have added more ribbing rows but I didn't know if I would have enough yarn. As it is, the hat fully covers my ears so I am very pleased!

The pattern gives directions for three different weights of yarn, and I'd like to knit one in sport next!! This is a great pattern, very well written with beautiful results.

This was my first time using Malabrigo and it is sooo lovely!! The dye job is gorgeous and the yarn is so dreamy. On vacation I bought a fingering weight skein of Malabrigo... moohaha! can't wait!
