Tres Chic Veronique


Catching up.

Lately, all my posts have been proudly displaying an FO. Well, I felt like posting more than once a month, so this time, you'll get to see some WIPs!

I started making the Socks for Veronik from the sold out IK Holiday issue. I felt like I had no choice, really, since they are almost named after me, and since the designer, Mona Schmidt and my sister share a name! I lusted after the STR in the color Brick, after seeing it at Rhinebeck, but the line was way too long, so I purchased it online. I immediately noticed that the yarn *might* be a little on the thick side for this pattern, but trudged along nonetheless. You know what happened next, right?

Socks for Veronik

Yes, the socks are too wide... Luckily, a little stash diving unearthed some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn in the Purl custom color Sunshine Stripe. Perfect!
Oh, and the sock blockers? I got some for Marie for the Spider's party, but you know, if you pay for shipping, you might as well get more items, right? Right. The eBay vendor Chappy's Mom was fantastic.

I've also been working on Olga's cover jacket from Sensual Knits. I'm using DB Cashmerino Aran in the discontinued and awesome color 609 (a rusty, glowing orange), and recalculating for my gauge. See? I really do like knitting math!
