Return from the Summer!

I know, I know, I disappeared again. Work tends to do that. I find it harder to blog (for whatever reason) when I’m away from home. I like routine I suppose. :)

I didn’t get much knitting done over the summer, but I have since I’ve been home! I finished Cara’s socks:

I only had the one foot left to do, and it went really quickly because Cara has teeny size 5 feet. The pattern is the Embossed Leaves socks from Favorite Socks by Interweave Knits.

The yarn was by All Things Heather; I got it for donating to a cause she was promoting on her blog. I love the colours, they are all my favourites, but also very Cara I think. And a good match for the pattern because we all know that green = leaves.

I immediately started a new pair of socks (naturally)! Another Interweave pattern, this time the Annetrelac Socks.

The yarn I bought off Etsy about a year ago, from Yarn Ahoy. It’s really cool in that the colours fade slowly throughout the skein from light to dark. It took a bit of time to decide whether I wanted dark or light on the feet, but in the end I decided that the cuff should be the light part, the feet dark. Otherwise I think they’d look top-heavy.
