Sticks and string...

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to post this update, but I took the pictures last week! This is a bit of what I've been up to in the knitting world. The above were knitted for my friend Amanda's aunt in exchange for a new set of dpn to knit them with! Great trade, in my opinion! I've knit this pattern several times now and each time I do it a bit differently. This time was my favorite for sure! I lengthened everything, the cuffs, the body, the top cuffs and the thump, and knit it all about 1/4th smaller than the pattern calls for. The result is really snug and warm! I think they won't lose their shape as quickly as my own pair did.

The pattern was Fetching by Cheryl Niamath
The yarn was Tosca from Lang Yarns.

My perpetual WIP is this lady here:

Knit with Bollicine Victor from Cascade

Again it's slightly modified, no bobbles, longer waist, and I'll need to knit in a wider button band than the pattern calls for. It's been a challenge, to say the least, but I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere with it!
