Turning Primroses into Dragonflies

I finished these socks this week and ever since I've been battling to get a decent photo. I think it must be the time of year.



The yarn is Primroses and the pattern is Dragonfly Socks. It's been a while since I've knitted cuff-down socks and I must confess I'm out of the habit. I think I might becoming a toe-up addict! Its a very easy pattern and the yarn is great to work with.

Before I went to Cairns I also manged to finish the Seamless Baby Kimono. It was going to be a traveling project but it knitted up so quickly that I finished it before we left. I used 4.00 mm circular needles and Spotlight Basics Merino. The only modifications I made was to add a little icord collar and I made icord ties rather than garter stitch ties. Its a terrific pattern.

Hey Valli, your socks were made from a yarn that is 50/50 wool/cotton. The kimono was knit for baby Sarah, a friend's baby.

I love the socks but the baby kimono is sooo cute! I may just have to cast that on...

oh I think an icord edging would be such a good addition. Thanks for that. I'll do it on my next one. The neck on mine was a bit floppy.
