Golden Harvest Weave

My hearty whole grain harvest socks - I love them (I know I say that for all my socks, but I REALLY do!) The 8 row weave stitch panel in Mad Color Weave is easily memorized after 1-2 times through, so it becomes a simple satisfying project that knits up quickly with sport weight yarn. I've recently knit 2 pairs of socks in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport - the gentle color shading and heavenly softness/squishiness makes it perfect.

Mad Color Weave

Pattern: Mad Color Weave by Tina Lorin
Yarn: 74 gms (Just over 1 skein) Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Harvest colorway from the wonderful Linda at Birds-n-Yarn.
Needles: 2 socks together on 2.75 mm circular
Size: 58 stitches around
Modifications:I changed the side left and right twist stitches to baby cable ribbing (pg. 40 A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker) - I just like it better. You can see the pretty little cables that split at the heel in this pictures...

I'm showing you socks, but my head is chock full of mittens ! I had many different mittens planned, but I dropped them all when I saw Kathy's beautiful Moose Loves Roses mittens. (Scroll down a little way, but check out her new Selbuvotter gloves on the way down!) Just in the nick of time, I joined the Jorid Linvik Designs KAL and raided my leftover sock yarn to start moose mittens - not enough for a picture yet....soon though :-)

On the quilting front, I am finally machine quilting the Mother Goose Quilt - It has fun prairie point borders and a soft beautiful flannel backing. The machine quilting plan is developing as I go...
