It's Worth Repeating

For today's Monday project features, I have lots of photos to share! First, we have these socks from Suzy, made from a mini-cable pattern from Good Knits. (My apologies. I couldn't find a link for this pattern.)


Suzy made these socks with FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Smoke colorway. The photos are pretty dark on my monitor, but you can see a little more of the detail in this closeup.



Thank you very much for sharing your work Suzy. The socks looks great!

The next photos are projects you've actually seen before, but they're worth repeating with final photos.

Remember the fabulous German stockings that Aija made with FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Royalty colorway? When I posted her photo back in April, there was only one sock finished. Now that the pair is done, Aija was kind enough to share more photos.



I'm only going to show you this one shot above, because you really need to pop over to Aija's blog to see not only the rest of her German Stocking photos (she's got lots of pictures showing all the great details), but all of the other marvelous things on her blog. And, of course, don't forget to visit her Etsy shop for fantastic stitch markers.

The other photos I have to share are actually of my own project, but since they are a project you've already seen, I thought I'd toss in the mix with the Monday project features.

Remember the shawl I knit for my niece's prom from Eunny Jang's Print 'O the Waves pattern and my FF Laceweight Merino? Well, the prom is over now and I have photos to share. My niece reports that the prom was great fun and the shawl was a big hit! I'm just glad that she survived the prom in tact. (Well, she survived alive and healthy . . . I'll leave it to her mother to worry about whether she survived in tact. Heh.)



And another:



That's all the news that's fit to print today. Everyone enjoy the remainder of the long holiday weekend! And keep those completed project photos coming!

She is beautiful and the shawl went so well with the dress.

The socks are great too. It is so neat to see the different things that people create with your yarn.
