Rainy Days Make For Lots of Knitting FO's

Finally some knitting pics!

These are knit with 2 strands of Lion Brand Magic Stripes. I was inspired by Lizzie and all those beautiful socks she knits. I also taught myself a new toe finish - the star toe.

Here's another pair based on the CIC sock pattern.
Yarn: Lion Brand Woolease.

I think I like making smaller socks!

Ugg Booties or Suede Booties

Whatever you want to call them, these are based on this pattern.
Suede Booties by Candi Jensen

So again I did not follow the pattern for the booties exactly. I modified the cuff part by adding some ribbing with a smaller needle.

Dandy Little Booties

Pattern: A Dandy Little Bootie
Somehow I made a mistake - I have garter ridges and there is not supposed to be any. Must make more and re-read the pattern!

Fair Isle Slippers
This used to be a free pattern awhile back, but not anymore.
It is now in the Bernat Great Gift Ideas #530181 booklet.

2 Strand Slippers

The above pair of slippers was based on Dilys Sutherland's Three Strand Slipper pattern. I knit them from the toe up and used 2 strands of knitting worsted.

Here's another tweedy pair from the same pattern as above. I guess I really like this pattern!

They are all wonderful. When you knit with two strands of self-striping yarn, do you hold the yarn so that the stripe sequence is matching?
