Alex's New Knit Socks

Spring weather doesn't stop me from knitting socks. I just finished this pair with some yarn I picked up at Purl's Yarn Emporium last year. (I can't tell you how proud I am to be finishing projects with yarn I bought just last year. Progress!)

Pattern: my own cuff-down pattern (64-stitch cast on) with purling on the front, knitting on the back

The Knitorious RBG Sweater Test Knit

In November and December, I committed my knitting to this AMAZING test knit for Park Williams celebrating Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And since today is RBG's birthday, I thought it would be a great time to share it.

There were some adventures along the way. I decided to make the full-length version instead of the cropped version, and I couldn't find the yarn at any of my LYSs, so I had to order it online. It took foreverrrrr to get here, which isn't ideal when you're under a test knit deadline!

Pattern: The Knitorious RBG by Park Williams
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Pitch Black and Natural
