Just In Time For Ice

These would have been finished sooner, but I got interrupted by the simple wrapover. To make up for lost time I stayed up late last night to finish the Anastasia's. So here is the scoop:

Pattern Anastasia by Pepperknit
Yarn Artyarns Supermerino in a blue color way (#107)
Needles Addi Turbo US2 Circs
Started November 27, 2006
Finished December 4, 2006
Notes Wandered from pattern by using a heavier gauge yarn. I had to cast on fewer stitches and reduced number of stitches between eyelet repeats.

Overall, I like both the yarn and the pattern. The repeat is easy to memorize, so no printed pattern had to travel with me (more room for other projects). Soccerchica saw Anastasia and has already claimed them for her own. The yarn is easy to work with and I absolutely love the color. My only wish is that each hank had more yardage for longer socks.

Guess I'll have to knit another pair. Time for a Koigu purchase?

Boo-boo has swimming lessons at the Family Y Center. We leave his life jacket outside to dry. RM left his life jacket outside to dry during the ice storm last Friday. Oops. I leave you with a picture of Boo-boo's ice jacket.

Thanks. I just knit them. The designer did a great job putting the pattern together.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. : )

Great socks! I haven't ventured into sock knitting yet. The needles are SO small.
