Love’s Promise by “Amanita” Agata Mackiewicz, Dye Cauldron Classic Sock in ‘Denim’
Knitting this as one of my entries to the Canada KAL
Hardly worked on it - keep having to pull back rows because I mess up the lace pattern by not actually reading the pattern and thinking I can just wing it…
~Naima Sweater (long version)
Pattern by ANKESTRiCK
Yarn is Diamond Highlander, a 100% Wool, sport weight yarn
Love this yarn; pattern got stalled at the increases last fall. I started thinking I wasn’t going to like the sweater, which put me off itl; also, I forced myself to do the sleeves before the body, and I hate sleeves so I think that tarnished my opinion of it.
Has lots of yardage, need to finish it for stash dash!
