They came out very nice. The end fabric feels so yummy. Rach was so happy she wore them today. I can't wait to see how they wear.
Here is my next project. It is Paton's Soy Wool Stipes in the Natural Plum Colorway. The pattern is one I got from Knitnride, she's on Ravelry. She had this pattern on her blog, using Noro, but I just couldn't afford that just yet. So when Michaels had their yarn sale, I thought I would try it using this yarn.
The directions are to CO 74, knit for 57 inches. Then for the back, pick up 82 stitches from the middle and knit 15 1/2 inches. There are no other instructions for it, but I think from the picture on her blog I should be able to duplicate it. At least, I hope so. It's all about learning!
I was bad. I have placed an order for needles from knitpicks and Ialso ordered some yarn. I went to Michaels and to ACMoore and neither store had exactly what I needed or wanted. So, they will come with free shipping sometime in the next two weeks.
