For the past few weeks I've been working on some small projects - biding my time until I can begin a sweater for one of the loom group members. Since I can't stand to be without a knitting project small things like socks and baby shoes keep me occupied without a lot of commitment. A large project like a sweater, especially when its not for me and someone is paying for my knitting, takes up most of my knitting time. So, these couple things I made in the mean time are now up on Etsy.com. Hopefully they'll bring in a little extra $$ this month.
The socks on the left are 100% wool. Made from Paton's merino wool that they now carry in Michaels (YEAH!). The cuffs, heels, and toes are made from a dusty blue color and the body is alternating stipes of dusty blue and blue and white tweed. I love the way they came out. I'm also loving using two colors for socks.
The infant shoes below are made with 100% coton Patons Grace yarn. I've always wanted to try the yarn since it has a beautiful sheen to it. One skein isn't a lot of commitment and these shoes came out nice with it. I'd definitely use the yarn again on a larger project.
They are an ankle strap style with a little purple button on the strap. I think they are adorable- but we'll see how they sell.
