Not just socks & a rave review


Finished the Yarrow Rib Socks from Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush.







This gives a somewhat better idea of the colors in the yarn. The tiny white dots are the sparkles, not dandruff. They actually fit me so I get to keep them.





My second linen towel inspired by the Mason-Dixon book. Notice a certain favorite color?



I have fallen in love with Rowan's new yarn - Tapestry. It is 70% wool and 30% soybean fiber. It comes in the most beautiful colorways and is like knitting air. I began this little lacy scarf during my beginners' class last night. They are going to learn how to make it next week.




And this will be a Natalya gauntlet - a free pattern from Savannahchik. Again in Tapestry, this colorway reminds me of Maine granite.

Another gorgeous yarn, Cate! You do realize that these reviews of yours are tempting me? And I am one of those SABLE people already. Oh well, must seek out the Tapestry in my neck of the woods :).

Bad Cate! Bad Cate! Satan, get thee behind me! It is VERY hard to keep to the No Knitting Vow when you tempt me with such lovely stuff. Makes me want to knit a Tapestry sweater for myself.
