The Lady of Lallybroch Outlander Inspired Socks (March 2015 Socks)


Going strong on the 12-socks-in-2015 challenge!  Here is my third pair for the year.  This was a sock kit I got from Pandia's Jewels and represents a collaboration between PJ yarn and a pattern by my favorite sock pattern designer, C. C. Almon of JavaPurl Designs (and also of the Geeky Girls Knit podcast, which I LOVE!).

I was crazy excited to knit these socks.  The yarn?  Completely luscious.  Just look at those colors!  I love the way PJ yarns knit up.  One might say I'm addicted.  And I would be hard-pressed to deny it.  And the pattern was wonderful.  As soon as I saw these gorgeous cables, I was hooked.  I adore cables.  As usual, the pattern was written so well; super clear and the result is always fabulous. 

I loved the unusual design element of these socks.  They have a folded down cuff with nonfunctional buttons.  That is another reason I love this sock pattern designer; she comes up with such creative ideas!

Needles:  Hiya Hiya Sharps circular, US 1.5

Yarn:  Lallybroch by Pandia's Jewels (Snug)

Pattern:  Lady of Lallybroch (Outlander Inspired) by JavaPurl Designs

Project Bag:  Madbird

Media:  Most of the time I was listening to the Outlander series whilst knitting these (Drums of Autumn and then The Fiery Cross), but I also watched an assortment of TV shows including Outlander, Friends, Gilmore Girls, Angel, and Doctor Who.

Crafting Dates:  March 1 - 15, 2015

BIG CHANGES for The Knitting Broomstick in 2018!!!

Hello everyone!  I feel like it has been far too long since I have chatted with you all.  It's so nice to finally be posting and sharing some things that have been on my heart for awhile now.  I will warn you in advance that this post is long, so feel free to skip over the parts that don't interest you! 

You will find updates in this post concerning my personal life, crafting, the Knitting Broomstick podcast, the 13 Months of Magic KAL (and other KALs), and the Knitting Broomstick Etsy shop.  I have added headers, in bold, so that you can easily skip to the sections that are of interest to you.  And if you read the whole entire thing; I owe you a massive cup of tea!!!!  ;)

PERSONAL:

First, I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season!  I can't believe it is almost over, but it has been a great one and I'm thankful for the time I have had with my family.  It was definitely a different holiday season; a bit of a slower one for us, and that has been nice. 

Almost ever…
