Late Friday FO's

Today I finished up a couple of items. It's good to get these off my plate. I've got so many more things I want to start and I don't want too many WIP's.

Pattern: Wollmeise Socks
Yarn: Hand+Notions Sock Merino/Nylon Sock
Needles: US 1

These are sample socks for Hand+Notions to use at shows. Aren't the colors amazing!?!

Pattern: Ginger
Yarn: Rowan Summer Tweed
Needles: US 8 and 9

Overall I'm not completely happy with this one. Shaping is wonky. I'm sure that was my doing in trying to length the torso. Because of this I cannot wear it with the v in back. Also, knitting with the Summer Tweed was tedious at best. Silk and Cotton equal no stretch at all. Had to take my time with it in order to keep stitches even and in order to give my hands a rest after knitting a bit. If I was to knit it again, I would definitely knit it in the round and maybe down a size for a more fitted knit.

However, I will be wearing it to my local Stitch n Pitch in a couple of weeks. Perfect garment for NC weather.
