Monday Pick-Me-Up

The weather's been holding out longer than usual here in Oregon, with not too much rain yet and mostly beautiful sunny afternoons. This morning, unfortunately, the inevitable Oregon raining is pouring down. A few beautiful knits to gaze at should be the perfect pick-me-up for this dreary morning.

As part of a wedding gift for a friend and fellow knitter, Teri made two pair of socks for the new husband and wife. The socks for the bride are knit with FF Lightweight Superwash Merino Sock Yarn in the Earthenware colorway.



The pattern is Bacchus Socks by Alice Bell, published in Interweave Knits Fall 2008. Check out the lovely details:



The groom's socks are made with the same yarn, this time in the Sublime colorway.



The pattern this time is Tesserae Socks by Anne Hanson of KnitSpot.



What a great gift! Since the bride is also a knitter, I'm sure she'll appreciate it all the more.

Teri's also been busy working on a Twinings Stole (pattern also from KnitSpot):



She's using FF Laceweight Merino in the Antique Rose colorway.



This piece is not quite finished in the photos above, but you can see already that it's going to be absolutely gorgeous!

Lots more of Teri's beautiful work can be found on Ravelry where she is treefrog303.

A big Thank You to Teri for sharing her work and helping to start a rainy Monday off on a sunny note!

Love that Twinings shawl! The Bacchus socks are way cool, too--I'm headed off to find my copy of IWK and decide whether I want to knit a pair myself.
