The Lime & Violet Knit Along!

Fans of the Lime and Violet Podcast can show their colors with Lisa Souza Lime & Violet sock yarn. The projects are as varied as Lime & Violet's audience -- the common thread is the awesome yarn.

Have finished my socks and have some yarn to spare :).
My first time using Lisa's yarn and I've already bought 2 more skeins - it's very nice to work with.

I played around with a welt-stitch pattern and I like how it's come out, not too much pooling.

Now I need to find some purple or lime to use with the leftovers for another pair.

Happy New Year all!

Hello and overdue

Hi there!

I joined the KAL about a week ago, and this post is really, as my caption states, long overdue.
I also chose the Jaywalkjers, simply because I never had knit jaywalkers before, and as this is my forth pair of socks I felt ready for them.
That's how the pattern came out during the cuff knitting:

I've already completed the first sock, but my cam is on strike, so no pics, sorry! Yet after the heel was completed, the pattern changed to a kind of light & dark spiral patches - someone here already knit the whole sock this way. Looks kind of nifty ;)

Finally Started

I finally got going on my Jaywalkers. It's going pretty smoothly, although I'm having trouble keeping the increases looking neat. I'm starting the heel flap today!

I could possibly cry

So it is a good thing that my socks are sleep socks. I used different sets of needles both size 2 dpns. The pattern and stitch count was the same also. I just did the all time knitting error of not checking gauge. I also am so into holiday knitting that I can't go and add length to the short sock. Good thing they are to sleep in.

So Far, So Good...

I finally have a little something to post about :). I'm using Lisa Souza's "Lime & Violet" Sock, and it's the first time I've used her yarns, so there was never a question that this would be anything other than a pair of socks. It is very nice to work with and I'm liking how the colours are working with the pattern. It's been fun seeing the other things that some of you are making - and is keeping me inspired!

The Ungainly Sock

Okay, I'm waving the white flag of defeat...

The Thistle pattern was a I then tried a basic square shawl lace....the holes were lost in the mass of lime and violet....FROG.....

Only one thing left to try....socks.....

So here is the first one.

It is out of porportion because the cuff is ribbing and the foot is from yarn that was frogged. Once I wash and block it It should look better....knitting the second sock now, still using yarn that was frogged.
