Bobble Goodness! Little Cabin Knitted Sweater

You might remember that I was working on this sweater when I went home to see my family in Kentucky after my uncle, Billy, passed away. This sweater really helped me get through a tough time, and I'll forever think of him when I wear it.

And I plan on wearing it a lot! It really turned out great.

Pattern: Little Cabin by Caitlin Hunter
Yarn: Cascade 220 in Plum

More Knitted Socks! Lavender Double Lace Rib Socks

Warning: blinding white legs ahead.

You know I love knitting socks, but they're usually for Alex, who has quite a collection now. So when my friend Jo's mom, Kim, so generously unloaded part of her stash on us, I nabbed some madelinetosh yarn that's to DIE FOR.

Yarn: madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Sugar Plum
Pattern: Double Lace Rib Toe-Up Socks by Stefanie Pollmeier (FREE pattern!)

I'm not usually a toe-up sock kind of gal. I love the easy heel of the toe-up sock, but I loathe the cast on. But this pattern was just so pretty that I couldn't pass it up.
