I love lime and purple together. It's so vibrant and spring!

The yarn is Cashmere Blend Sock in colors Berry Pie and Pear Blossom. I actually knit it out of the leftovers from my Color Affection. I would have made it to the end just fine, but I was about 2 stripes short with the purple (Berry Pie). So that should give you an idea of just how much mileage you can get out of the yarn. 

The pattern is Dancette (rav link) by Irish Girlie Knits. I am super happy because when I posted the pattern on Ravelry I actually got a comment by the designer herself on how she liked the color combo! I am always thrilled to support indie designers!

A lovely front shot with a Plover Designs Aluminum Swirl shawl pin. I love that this pattern is so versatile and can be worn in so many different ways. 

I would definitely knit this pattern again, perhaps in different colors. What colors would you knit it in?

Oak Street Mitts

I love these mitts! They were one of the first patterns I designed, with simple ribs that run up the fingers.

I actually first designed them for my husband out of sock yarn, then liked them so much I made a pair for myself. The patterns are aptly called Man Mitts and then Girl Mitts. Then the pattern was republished by Gardiner Yarn Works and includes both patterns under the name Oak Street Mitts

I have had them knit up in colorway Bad Girl for many years in the booth and I decided they needed a fresh make-over. So I had my friend Jill knit them up again in Superwash Sock color Garden Party. I really love how they came out. We will have them in the booth at Black Sheep Gathering next month, so make sure to stop by and see it in person.

We had a wonderful time at the coast! Lots of long walks and exploring was had by all. We ended up coming home a little early because X came down with a bug. So we rested at home. I have my energy back and the creative juices are flowing! I am working on dyeing up yarn for a Sock Club and for Black Sheep next month! If you would like anything custom dyed, just let me know and I'll be happy to include it!
