Free Super Bulky Sock Pattern and other knitting projects...

Hello! yeah, it's been a lonnnnnnnnnnng winter, but I have been busy, so let's try to get everyone back up to speed!
While clearing out some old emails, I found one saved email and thought I'd share while adding to my basket of WIP's.

KnitFreedom's Super Bulky Sock pattern calls for 1 skein of Milabrigo Rasta (90 yards) and knits up fast and soft. I'm going to go to Pins & Needles in Delavan, and get some, next time I'm in that area. I think Pat would like these! :)

I finished up a quick pair of Biker Wrist Warmers this morning, and pretty darn happy with them. I used Berroco Vintage in Pumpkin, so soft~

 The pattern was written for dpns, but I am a die-hard 2 ata time Circular Girl, I have to do things in pairs so they are both the same size-takes all the guesswork out of counting rows. And if I screw up, I did it twice, so I'm a little more careful then ;)

The Biker Wrist Warmers were made to compliment my Biker Neck Warmer Cowl I finished right after the Holidays. I used Red Heart Tweed Stripes,a nice soft acrylic/wool blend with nice, subtle striping. The colors of the two yarns was a good match!

 
 I'm in between projects again, so will update on what's next. DH wants me to make him a scarf, so I got some Berroco Vintage in Cast Iron (black) and trying to find a simple pattern that isn't too boring. Maybe I'll make his with an added Arrowhead design at either end, or up the middle for the length of the scarf. Will be fun watching a design take shape.

I got a lovely email from a dear friend half a world away, in Australia. She was wearing the Travelling Woman shawlette I sent her. It was so good to see her wearing it, I felt it brings us closer, despite the miles...

Hope the weather is good in your neck'o the woods and keep smiling, Spring is almost here! :))
