Pattern: Dashing by Cheryl Niamath
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy; 1 skein (100g; 250 yds); col Go Go Grassy
Needles: 4mm dpns
Notes: Another Christmas gift crossed off my list. I have 40g leftover. I knit the larger size on smaller needles for a firmer fabric.
Ignore the fact that they look small on hubby. He's got monster hands and big wrists.
I immediately cast on for a child's sweater.
I'm using the seamless yoke design from The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns. The hem, cuffs, and yoke will have stripes. The green is the leftover Classy from the Dashing mitts. Father & son will match!
I joined a CAL on Ravelry and I've picked socks as my project. I've never crocheted socks before so I swatched.
I got gauge on the second attempt. I think this will be fun.
I wound up a few skeins of sock yarn to make another pair of manually striped socks.
I think they look very festive. Hopefully, I'll finish them in time for Christmas.
