Finished Object Friday

Happy Friday!  Believe it or not I have not one but two items to share today.  I know it is a shock but I have finally finished the unending socks!

I am very happy with them.  They fit perfectly.  I had planned to make them longer ( they are toe up), but I hated making these so finally decided to call it quits.  Some combination of the stitch pattern, needle and yarn was just a bear to work with.  And I love all three individually.  The combination was not happy.
Here is a detail of the toe and the stitch pattern.  I have never had a pair of socks that fit so well.  The pattern is Mock Cable by Wendy Johnson.  And I have already cast on for another pair of socks.  I don't plan to finish them quickly but it is handy to have a very portable project to carry around.

 My other item is the Twined Mitts from Beth Brown-Reinsel's workshop.  I really enjoyed these and will definitely use them.  They are really warm.  I may do a pair of mittens that are similar to these.
Here is the back side, just to see how the twining looks.  It is definitely different than stranding.

Since it is Friday, head over to Tami's and Wisdom Begins in Wonder to see the great projects.  Have a great weekend and hope you have lots of time for fiber.


  1. Beautiful projects, the socks look great and your mitts are beautiful. The twining looks intriguing.

  2. The socks look so cozy! You will love wearing them. The mittens are interesting. I have always wanted to take her twined class, just never got the opportunity.

  3. Your stitches are perfection...I really like both the patterns.

    I am just sitting sipping my drink and taking a look-see at what everyone is up too.

  4. Great projects, both. I'm forever making my toe-up socks too long, so good for you for getting it right! And how nice is it to get a longstanding project off the needles :)

  5. Love the mitts. They looks incredible smart.

  6. Love the socks. I always have a pair on the needles. perfect for traveling. The mock cables are perfect. Your mitts are sassy. I like the design.
