I finished up my Gran's Veronika Cardi. I didn't take many pictures because I was kinda done with it near the end. It was an easy pattern and the yarn was super nice but the washing and blocking was such a pain! And the yarn bled alot. I was really surprised by that. It's an expensive yarn so I figured the color wouldn't run. Boy, was I wrong. I wouldn't make this again. It is just so big and once the sides are sewn together it doesn't wear very well. I guess I shouldn't be surprised for a garment that is just rectangles with no shaping at all.
I also finished a Knox Hat. I've had this pattern for awhile and tried it once with a sport weight yarn but it wasn't looking right so I ripped it out. I tried again with some DK in my stash and it turned out nice but it was way too short for me. I don't like to wear hats on the back of my head like the model. I need more slouch! I put it on the free table at work and it found a good home.
I also made a pair of the Heart Lace motif variation of the Smooth Operator Socks. They were alot of fun to make!
I won this pattern from Killer Kitsch on Instagram and I'm working on it now. I'm really getting into vintage patterns and new patterns with a vintage flair. It won't fit me but hopefully I can learn from it and pass it on to a good home.
My favorite thing from the last month is my Professor Meow Pullover. I bought the kit from KnitPicks during a sale. I learned alot making it. I'd never done intarsia or seaming before. It's super big but I love how warm and cozy it is.
Here's a few pics of my cat and Gran's dog Pokey. They are really good knitting buddies <3
