Robin's Vladivostock

Courtney and others encouraged me to post pictures of the Vladivostock I made in sea silk. This is a RosieKnits pattern and the second one I have made (the first being in koigu). I used 2 skeins of Handmaiden's Sea Silk in the Ivory colorway. I cast on only 96 stitches to make sure that I still got the length while only using 2 skeins. The measurements are approximately 20 x 70.

Inspired by Knitting Circle

I decided these two colors go perfect together at last week's knitting circle, when scraps of the two intertwined each other in my knitting bag. I signed up for a toe up sock class, intent on knitting Ode to Eames Mosaic Socks by Zeitgeist Yarns.

Now back to my homework to knit up to the heel before next Sunday's class.
