Yes I knit more socks!

A finished pair of socks for my husband.

The yarn and pattern were part of The Ram Club from The Unique Sheep. The yarn has 4 gradations of color. DH has size 12 feet and there was not enough yarn. The pattern has a number of problems, starting with the transition from ribbing to pattern.

Started on May 1, 2010, I finished them June 10. I am not loving the yarn or the designer.

Baby sweater
I had sweaters for 2 little girls put away. This spring, 2 neighbors and a friend are having/have had girls. I need to give this before July 1, when the Mom leaves town. The pattern is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Tomten Jacket. I'm using cone yarn and a few odd balls. Size 6/4.0 mm needles.

I got a thrill out of grafting the hood in garter stitch. The intructions and diagram were in Knitting Workshop.

Can you email me ( about the sock pattern? I'd like to let the designer know about the problems with the pattern so we can get them fixed. Thanks!
