Octobers Prime Time

 I can't believe that October is almost over and Christmas is almost here. I was able to get a few things done this month. I finished a pair of socks I used yarn that I purchased at Sock Summit 2011 this summer from Amy Lee. The colorway is Count Dracula so this is my Halloween Socks. They are your basic stockinette with an afterthought heel. I think they turned out well. 

I bought the book Coastal Knits by Hannah Fettig and Alana Dakos. I love the photograph in this book and the patterns are great. I decided right away to cast on the Rustling Leaves Beret and loved how it turned out. I had plenty of yarn left so decided to make a pair of fingerless gloves. I used the leaf pattern in the beret and worked them into the gloves. I really like how these turned out and I just hope I did Alana proud. 

I have a pair of socks on the needles thought I might get them done this month but don't see that happening. I have cast on a cardigan out of Coast Knits called Rocky Coast and hope to have it done by the end of November, will see if that happens.  Till next month Happily knitting, Bye.

Beautiful! I've wanted to buy this book for a while now and think I need to do it for sure now.
