Two more projects
Being on vacation involves a lot of knitting. :)





The sock pattern is "Smaug" - you can't see the cable very well here, but they have twining kind of serpentine cables, seen here. The pattern was very firmly three-needle, and I am very firmly two-circular, which led to some problems, and some accidental misreading led to some other problems, so I ended up ripping back more than I like to, but they worked out in the end. I've made socks with the wrapped stitches before, and it's a really nice effect to break up multicolor yarn, but it also works well for "dragon scales".

The cowl was a kit - they came in a bunch of color combinations all named for classic leading ladies - this one was Dorothy Lamour. Here's me attempting to model it. It's soft and warm and poofy and pretends to be mink, and would probably work well under a non-zipper coat. (I would not trust zippers to zip up over it). Is this anyone's One True Awesome Winter Cowl that they want?
