So, I was on a roll towards finishing my sweater project, but I went on a sock tangent instead.

I made my first socks! They're a little roomy and and slighty mismatched but I love them. I brought 4 skeins of brown tweed with me from college and one of them is a trespassing brown tweed from a different company so one sock has a slightly different shade toe. That's okay because I'm making up for it with a beautiful pair of Green tweed socks.

Here's my other sock still needing a mate.
yarn: Classic Elite Skye Tweed in green, Nature Spun from Brown Sheep Company in butterscotch

I got commissioned to knit some legwarmers for a friend and did one of them today.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It's my first time working with Rowan Soft Tweed. I love it so now I have to get some of my own for other projects!
yarn: Rowan Soft Tweed
pattern: my own is the j. crew sweater I got in the mail from eBay. I'm obsessed with it.

The green socks kick ass! They make me want to take the unfinished socks off my wall (you know, where unfinished socks go). I have a ton of soft tweed for a sweater that I haven't started yet. All in good time. Awesome hat and rug as well.
