Some finished Projects

I just noticed that in my last post, I commented that I found the "Eclipse Socks" pattern on etsy, but I must have been tired when I wrote that. I actually found the pattern on, you must have an account to access the patterns. Here is the pictures I promised. I used  a #1 circular needle. 32" long. I used the magic loop method. It was a lot of fun and I couldn't believe how fast they worked up.

I also just completed this knitted corset top. I finished the knitting quite a while ago, but I couldn't find the right buttons to go with it. I ended up finding just the right ones on ebay. It's very hard to find 23 of the same buttons and have them match the garment. Anyway, this corset top is from designer, Annie Modesitt, one of my favs. I saw her demo it on the TV show, Knitty Gritty and I was able to download the pattern free at the time on I'm not sure if you can still get it for free. I've had it printed out for a couple years and finally made it. The cream colored trim is made of Lion Brand Suede. I think it was perfect. the buttons are called coffee cream, and that's just what they look like. The sage yarn is acrylic, not by choice, but wool is so expensive for a whole sweater. Now, I'm knitting some "Twilight mitts" from a pattern that I purchased on I'll take take some pics soon.
