Finished two projects in my new vacation time! One small, one large:




The rainbow socks were a convenient travel project. They're worked two at a time from opposite ends of the yarn ball, so the stripes are actually reversed between socks, but you don't really notice unless you look closely, and even if you do look closely, you probably don't care.

The blue cable sweater took ALMOST EVERY SCRAP OF YARN that the pattern required. I had to switch to using leftover sock yarn to sew the sleeves in, though I probably should have done that for the whole sewing up instead of using sweater yarn, because it didn't hold up well to being used for sewing. It's a woolen-spun yarn, not worsted-spun, which means that instead of the fibers being mostly parallel, they're kind of jumbly. This makes it loftier and warmer than the corresponding weight of worsted yarn, but it also makes it a lot more fragile.

The sweater is stunning, and the socks make me crave watermelon.

Shiny! I would call those watermelon socks, rather than rainbow, especially with the little black seeds. :)
