It felt so good to move a couple of my projects from “in progress” to “finished!” Here’s the results:

Trekking Socks
Yarn: Zitron Trekking (XXL) color 105
Pattern: my basic rib over 56 stitches
Needles: #2 Addi Turbos (2 circs method)
This picture is the best representation of the color of the yarn, which I love. And they felt even better on my feet than I expected them to. I’m not a fan of the Addis (not pointy enough), but the 2 circs method makes it a lot easier to take socks to the movies and such and not worry about losing a needle in the dark.

MS 3MS 3
Yarn: Knit Picks Bare 100% merino laceweight
Pattern: Mystery Stole 3 by Melanie Gibbons
Needles: #4 Knit Picks Options
I am so pleased with how this turned out. I boxed it up last night to get it ready to give as a gift, and with a piece of dark tissue paper just under the top layer, it looks pretty lovely. I’m finding myself somewhat hooked on lace, although not so much on the alpaca lace thing I’ve been knitting for a year and a half.

I’ve also made great progress on re-knitting (again) the Classic Elite Bam Boo sweater. The front and back are done, and I’m ready to work the math for the sleeves. Maybe I’ll wear it this summer yet!
