Fetiche is a pair of bold, bright, slightly-fishnetted ankle socks by designer Star Athena! They are knit in Sock, in the Light of Love colorway. Unorthodox though it might be, I love these with heels- sort of a cheeky retro pin-up vibe! If you’re going to take the time to knit your own socks, might as well make them the star, right? (I don’t have any “Alex’s-shapshots” of these that are more close-up than that picture up top, so we’ll skip that for these!)
Sur is a complex (but not complicated to knit) and gorgeous scarf by Breean Elyse Miller. It is a sister pattern to Juncos (which we’ll look at in a different post.) Sur is knit with one of our newest yarns, Silkpaca– a laceweight blend of silk and alpaca (of course!) The yarn is held doubled for faster knitting, and the scarf is knitted as a tube so that it’s twice as warm- given the materials, this is a very cozy scarf indeed, without the bulk.
Tune in next time for more Book 6 Pattern features! Malabrigo Book 6: In Cabo Polonio is available (or will be soon) anywhere that Malabrigo yarn is sold 🙂
