Riot in Rio bedsocks
Mum is in need of a new knitting
She knitted some washcloths last week and enjoyed it and will do more for the gift stash. To this end I bought her 9 balls of a microfibre yarn on special at Scablight and some op-shop balls of cotton as well. It's not going to hold her for long and could get expensive as the cotton stash is well depleted.
Unravelling jumpers has slowed down her wrist warmer production somewhat, and in a clean-up last weekend I found a few more for her, but she'll have those done this week.
What I need is something that she'll enjoy, that is portable, will go to a good cause and can be supported from current boodle.
Bed socks for Kuka's Can Assist project!
I've given her the pattern, bought her new needles, taken her about 40 balls of yarn from deep within the boodle (inspired yarn/pattern match, Kuka!) and done a couple of test runs with stash yarn.
Riot in Rio knitted from Moda Vera Luxury in the Forrest colourway. Snuggly AND sparkly - I love 'em but they aren't everyone's cup of tea.

And because Kuka put the Clafoutis pattern with Jet, I had a practice with some of that, too.
