I’ve been working my way through some of my wonderful sock yarns. I made these socks:
The project page is here. Good, old Regia yarn. Such a workhorse. I have some Regia socks that are over 10 years old.
Then I made this hat:
The project page is here. I used Sweet Georgia Yarn’s Tough Love sock yarn, colourway “shipwreck”. Really nice colours. According to Ravelry, this is my 16th sock yarn hat. I really like this style.
So I made another:
Project page is here. This is Regia Arctic Color 4124.
Then I had a hat that had been started to use up some left over sock yarn. I started it in July, but worked on other things since then. So I finished it:
Project page is here. For some reason, I didn’t like working on this.
On one of my trips to Vancouver, I picked up a really nice hank of what turned out to be lace-weight yarn. It was in with some sock yarn, and I had thought it was sock weight, but it wasn’t. So I was stumped with what to do with it. The yarn is Colour Adventures “Cloud Lace” in colourway “Pinktastic”. I looked for patterns on Ravelry and found a couple of interesting ones.
Both of these patterns develop an ombre effect by using two strands of yarn, then combining different shades in each section of the cowl/hood. I like that idea, but as I only had this one hank of pink, it’s not the ombre. But I think I would try this again with a sock yarn and a few different colours.
I have a couple of sweater patterns with yarns purchased, but I don’t feel in a sweater mood right now. So more socks and hats, I think!
