Finishing Week

Yes, you're about to see a flurry of finished objects this week. Let's get started with the old ones, shall we?

First off, the Junior High Eyeshadow socks were finished during vacation week.
Pattern: Basic toe-up, double wrapped sockinette automatic heel with EZ's sewn bind-off.
Yarn: Posh Lucia, approx. 320 yards
Finished July 2007

Well-worn Dansko shoes.

I've heard that German knitters call this a "boomerang" heel. It's knit back and forth. How cute is that?

Green Tea - Lotus Blossom Tank

Great pattern. The sleeves roll a bit for me, even after the garter edging. I've been thinking about picking up the edges and knitting a short-row sleeve cap.

Pattern: Lotus Blossom, Interweave Knits Summer 2006

Yarn: Cotton Patine, 8 skeins

Modifications: Added an extra 2", knit one size smaller for bodice.

Finished June 2007


Great pattern, except for the horrible collar. Blocking is a necessity here! It still needs a zipper.

Pattern: Rosedale at

Yarn: Noro Kureyon and Kathmandu Aran (black)

Modifications: Intarsia on both sides, not on front. Created thicker stripes on front of Cardigan.

Finished: December 2006

Looks like you also did a superb job with the noro and the stripes.

Love your socks as well, sometimes there is nothing so satisfying as a nice pair of stockinette socks.

The short row heel is new to German patterns, having only shown up in the last couple of years.

US influences the continent I guess!
