Two for One

For today's customer project feature, I have two great projects from Kelly. Both use FF Superwash Merino Sock Yarn in the Chocolate Pink Cherry colorway.

The socks are Web Socks: Fancy Rib Variation, from Interweave Knits Online Winter 2005. Just as cute as can be!

Kelly had a good amount of yarn left over after finishing the socks and found a great use for it. She was making the Littlearrowhead Shawl from Interweave Knits Summer 2006 issue and ran short of the yarn she was using (a mysterious fuzzy pink yarn found in a sale bin). The extra Chocolate Pink Cherry Sock Yarn was a nice complement and so she finished off with that yarn.

(Apologies for the small photo. I couldn't get it to resize without turning blurry.)

Isn't it lovely?! As Kelly mentioned, highly variegated yarn isn't always the best choice for lace but it worked out really well as an edging to finish off this piece:

I love to see folks using leftover yarn creatively and Kelly certainly did a great job in finding a good use for hers!

You can check out more Kelly's work (and get a better view of the shawl) on Ravelry where she is beanstealer.

Are you inspired now? Go knit!
