Strange Little Valentines

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted...DOH! It seems I have less time lately to blog...or is it that I spend more time on Ravelry? :)

I thought I could share some baby knitting with you, but everything hasn't been received by the mamas yet, so I need to wait to share those, but in the meantime, check out my February Socks for SAM KAL 5!







I adored knitting these. It was my first time knitting with Vesper and boy was I pleased. I'm so glad I have another skein of her sock yarn in my stash!

Specs:
Pattern: 3x1 rib, 64 sts on the leg, 68 on the foot, slip stitch heel, "Charade" toe
Yarn: Vesper Superwash Wool/Nylon Blend in the StrangeLittleMama colorway
Needles: Size 1 Susan Bates DPNs

My socks for March are these babies...my first lace charted socks. The pattern is Embossed Leaves and I'm using another new-to-me sock yarn, Dream In Color Smooshy in Happy Forest.



More sock details, baby knits, vegan goodies (and recipes) and the cutest hat evah made for Miss Buggernut. Have a fabulous weekend!

Oooohh, so pretty. Hey, I have a skein of Vesper in my stash too. (Different colorway though) I think it will become 3x1 rib socks. :) And Embossed Leaves was my first charted lace sock too. Your is coming along fabulous. Love the color of that yarn. Perfect for the pattern.

I love the Vesper socks. I just got my first skein of it and I can't wait to cast on. I hope that you like the Embossed Leaves pattern. I really love it and was thinking about using one of my fav greens for it, too. I love the colorway that you are using. It's very fresh and spring-y. They will be so lovely! :)

I love how your Valentines came out, makes me wish I could finish a sock by the end of the month, not going to happen though, but I have a great start for March, hehehe.

Can't wait to see the bug in her new hat.

Just stopping by from mostlyselftaughtknitter. I love the cute stripey socks! I like it when they work out nearly identical, I haven't had a lot of luck with that lately. I so loved doing the embossed leaves pattern, it works up so quickly and looks so good!

Very pretty! Good for you. The green ones look like they are off to an excellent start too!
