I finished the September Dishcloth KAL. It's a schoolhouse by Andi Worthy. I used size 6 needles with Peaches and Creme in Brick Red. This is the first time I used Brittany birch needles and I really liked them. So much that I bought size 7 and 8.
I have also been working on my Spring Forward Socks. I finished one sock and I'm now working on the second sock. I hope to finish it this week.
I like this pattern. It is easy to follow and the stitches are easy to remember.
I have started two socks on two needles. This is the first time using circular needles for socks. It took me a couple of rows to get the hang of it. At times I felt as if the needles were all tangled up into loops. Thanks to a knitting friend at knitting class, I overcame my doubts and I think I'm going to like this method. I am using size 2 needles (one metal and one harmony - this is easier to keep track of the needles) and Indie Dyer yarn, which is 100% Superwash merino. The pattern I chose is the River Rapids Sock by Sock Bug. It was written for two socks on two circular needles and looks like it isn't too difficult a pattern to knit.
I guess it's a good thing to learn something new.
