Year of Projects, week 2

There's been a good deal of progress on my projects this past week, and I even finished one of them! Of course, it was a test knit with a deadline on Tuesday, so I kinda had to finish, but still - it's nice to be able to strike something off the list :)

I've just weaved in the last ends, and the Braided Swirl Socks are done. There's no pattern page yet, but I hope it will come soon :) It's an awesome pattern that I definitely recommend :)
The yarn is Lana Grossa Meilenweit Holiday Stretch which isn't all that soft to the touch, but seems like it'll wear very well :)

As for the Dragonfly Elfe, I've managed to get enough done there, that I'm feeling more confident about the gauge. I've tried to compare it to the other Elfe I did last year, and it seems to be spot on, so that's all good :) I LOVE the yarn! The colourchanges aren't quite as obvious in real life - something weird happened to the lighting in the photograph.

  1. Great socks. The pattern is really nice and striking. Will have to keep my eyes out for the pattern when released. Your Elfie is coming along nicely and I can see the color change quite well in the photo.

  2. You have a great eye for color, or maybe I'm biased because I LOVE purples but your projects are beautiful! I've had Elfe in my queue for awhile and hope to start it soon!

  3. Well done on getting the socks complete and it's really a very pretty sock. Elfe is coming on great, I'm loving the colour.

  4. The socks look lovely! Often the not so soft yarns do wear best. And the softest ones felt and then get holes right away. I hope yours end up being durable :)

    The yarn for Elfe looks lovely - I especially like those cyan-y blues!
