Two FOs

I was a good girl and finished up the toe on my first Art School Sock. They fit perfectly! And I'm very happy with the toe. It's Dawn Brocco's variation on a star toe that decreases on six points rather than four. I think it disrupts the flow of the color patterning less than other toes would.

And I finished up the Presto Chango. All except the buttons.
Pattern: Presto Chango
Yarn: Reynolds Dover, Superwash Wool, approximately 5 skeins (82 yards)
Modifications: Increase CO to 56 sts, increase to 60 sts
Body done with Ridge Stitch: (RS)Knit across, K2tog across, Kfb of each st across, Purl across)
Front Panel with Loop Pattern: (RS) Knit across, *K1, sl 1; rep from * to last 2 sts, K2, Knit across, K2, *sl 1 K1; rep from * to end
Button holes at top only. Remaining buttons permanently attached creating a pull over sweater.

I love the way it turned out. I'm just hoping that youngest grandson starts growing up instead of continuing to grow out! :) It might fit him right now, but it's supposed to be a December birthday present!

We have baby fruit in the back yard! And yes, we still have mature fruit on the tree! I don't have a ladder and everything we can reach has pretty much been picked!

Ray's got some lace and sock weight yarns on Special Clearance. Check 'em out!


  1. Everything looks beautiful! Love your baby fruit... You sure are getting a lot done. I'd better get back to that mittn I'm knittn'.

  2. Love the socks. The heel is very interesting. The sweater is one of my favorites. I want to come to your house for fresh lemonade! Have a great weekend!

  3. I am pleased to see these baby fruits. I am living in a city, in İstanbul so I can't see such nice things whenever ı want. They make me feel hopeful. Thanks for sharing.
