Lickity Split

In Fingering weight yarn, One skein projects, Patterns, Socks by Shannon

These socks will be done lickity-split, because you won’t be able to put them down. The soothing basket-weave-ish pattern looks so good in so many different dye techniques: tonal as in the samples shown here, self-striping, and highly-variegated. Heel increasing is so much fun with this on-the-sole-technique, and a soothing slipped-stitch toe-up heel flap is the icing on the fun-cake. …

Corduroy

In Fingering weight yarn, Patterns, Shawls & Shawlettes, Shop sample available by Shannon

Corduroy isn’t just for pants anymore! These shawls play around with alternating stockinette and reverse stockinette sections to create “wales” of different sizes, much like those corduroys that provide such warmth and comfort. Holding a mohair/silk lace-weight with a silky fingering gives you a luscious fabric that begs to be worn next to the skin, with a fuzz that’s just …
