A Finished Shawl and A New Sock

4ever in blue jeans shawl

I haven't been blogging regularly, but I have been knitting!  I finished my 4 Ever In Blue Jeans shawl and I love it!  This has mosaic colorwork, but this mosiac was done in garter stitch, where the mosaic colorwork from Walk in the Woods shawl (the fuschia and pale gray one from earlier this year) was in stockinette.  I feel like garter stitch mosaic has a lot more texture than stockinette mosiac.  Honestly, I think it has more going on texturally than regular garter stitch!  I actually wondered what this pattern would look like in stockinette, just to compare the differences, but I haven't been curious enough to knit a swatch of it.

I knit this in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Natural and Flycatcher Blue.  The blue is definitely part of the same muted blue family that denim falls into, so I felt like it was perfect for this design!  I used almost a complete skein of each color, so it was nice to only have minimal leftovers.

Here's one more shot of the pattern, just because!  I followed the pattern exactly until the very end where I added a few more rows of blue before binding off.

Anemone socks

I also started a new pair of socks and I'm more than halfway through the first sock.  The pattern is Anemone and I'm knitting it in Dream In Color Smooshy (the new Smooshy, with nylon) in Wineberry.  This is my first time knitting with the new Smooshy (previously, it was all merino) and I'm hoping the nylon improves the wear.  I knit Mickael a couple pairs of socks in the old Smooshy and while he is hard on his socks, those haven't aged very well.  I think the nylon should help quite a bit.  Also, yes, that's Newton photobombing the sock.  He just turned one year old on February 28.  He's so helpful!
