Fancy Silk Sock

Pattern: Fancy Silk Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush
Yarn: Tess' Super Sock Yarn
I did one less repeat than called for in the leg, due to my large calves, and I don't need super-tall socks. I think they're just right.

Ribby Cardi

Pattern: Ribby Cardi from Bonne Marie Burns at Chicknits
Yarn: Cascade 220: Color 4148C, lavendar, three skeins and color 9326, blue heather, two skeins. Zipper from A. Friebusch at Zipperstop.com (I ordered a 20" double-separating zipper, but should have ordered a 19" or 18.5" zipper. Oops. No biggie.)
Dates: March 5 - April 1, 2006

I really enjoyed this pattern. I might even make another in cotton for the summer. It was well-written, and a quick knit.
