Back to Knitting (And A Little Crochet)

My post on February 9 (which seems like at least a month ago now) was about a Flash Craft-A-Long that ESK was doing and I showed you a pair of socks. Later that very morning I frogged the partial sock I had shown you and restarted using a different pattern.  There's nothing wrong with the Love Bugs socks, but I had wanted to knit them top down instead of toe up and I was having to make too many decisions and changes to get them done in the time frame for the CAL.  When I saw the Fairy Maiden socks, I knew they would be fast to knit once I memorized the stitch pattern.  They were also worked top down so I wouldn't have to do much thinking while knitting them!

Fairy Maiden socks

Here are the finished Fairy Maiden socks.  I stopped the hearts on the foot and just went with the ribbing because I thought that would wear better and I thought the hearts might be uncomfortable on my foot in a shoe.  They are knit in Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Love Sock in Peony.

Palpitations 2021

I also made a few Palpitation Hearts.  One of them is made from the leftovers from my mosaic shawl, A Walk in the Woods, one is Hedgehog Fibres in their fingering weight singles in Dragonfly, and three are Malabrigo Mechita in Anniversario.

Finally, I was able to get two Heart Shaped Cloths out of some leftover yarn that was a prize from the ESK Yarnathon the year of the candy theme.  I can't remember the base but the color is A Sweet Race.  They are about the size of a mug rug, in other words they've got room for a mug and little snack on them.

Sorry not to include links, but I'm typing this blog entry one handed because I have Newton the Noodle laying in my lap across my other arm.  I do have Ravelry project pages for all of these with full details on them, so if you're truly curious what patterns I used you can check it out there.

These are gorgeous socks! I really love the way they look, especially with just the ribbing on the foot.
