Some items completed and others begun...

Completed: One pair of striped socks in Regia Stretch sized for a seven-year-old boy.

Completed: A quick scarf for myself knit from Mango Moon Chakra.  Simple garter stitch - knit in an evening.  The yarn is spun from recycled fibres with glass beads hand-tied on. 

Begun: Socks for a nine-year-old boy whose feet are bigger than mine!  Regia 4-ply.

Begun: and progressing apace: Holli Yeoh's Lucy knit from a Kaffe Fassett Regia 4-ply and some Opal in pink.  I've now finished the back and am almost halfway up the left front.  I've had to play around with the sizing on this pattern - it's very generously proportioned.  When I first started I was knitting the size 1/2 but producing enough sweater for a six-year-old!  It's cooperating nicely now and I love the colours in the sort-of-stripey yarn. 

The Bubblegum socks are coming along as well - I'm halfway through the heel on the second socks, but right now Lucy is too much fun to stop - and such an easy knit for my tired brain these days!


  1. Most of Holly's patterns are addictive - don't say I didn't warn you!

  2. Hi Cindy!

    I can imagine! I'm already eyeballing a few of the other patterns and wondering who I could knit them for... Someone we know is expecting in spring...!
