    August 2020 Sock KAL Chat - Think Garden Harvest!

    Our theme this month is: Garden Harvest. You can be creative in your pattern choice - just tell us how your pattern makes you think about harvesting a garden.

    This month's color is: Green - for all those zucchinis being picked!

    As always, you can knit any pattern or color you like but you get an extra entry in the prize drawing for using a pattern that goes with the theme and/or using the monthly color.

    Chat about the KAL in this thread and post your finished projects in the Finished thread.

    Started these socks this morning, I was excited to get going on them. I hunted around for some “Harvest” socks, and found some free from Knit Picks called “September: First Harvest Socks”. They are toe up, with two different charted patterns, lace, twisted stitches and cables. The greens in this hand dyed yarn remind me of green peppers, cukes , and zucchini. Yarn is Ice Hand Dyed Sock Yarn.

      Absolutely perfect! And I love that tonal green!

      Yes that green is very nice. It reminds me of the variations in the field crops as you drive by.

    I'll be finishing the ones I started on May 31st because I thought it was June 1st. 😂 I then set them aside to work on the Neverending Wrap test knit so they are still just sitting there with one day of work done on them. I dug them out last night hoping my notes were with them in the project bag but no such luck. So I had to deconstruct the lace pattern and figure out my pattern from what was already done. Let's hope I got it right.... I'm finishing up my Home of the Brave shorties and then I'll get to work on these. I was designing then with Spring Gardens in mind and there's plenty of green so hopefully they will count for everything except the start date.
    These are called Ryley's Garden because my granddaughter, Ryley, dyed the yarn and I'm knitting them for her. She turns 13 this month. I'll also be making gentle fit slipper socks for Pine Ridge in honor of my mom. Click image for larger version

      Thanks pinesprairie I'm actually grandma but the point is still true. 😊 She's a very Knitworthy kid.

      FreedomLover I was pretty impressed too! That day was the first attempt for either of us and hers came out really nice! And I couldn't believe how well it coordinated with Cascade Heritage green for the contrast. She's a pretty artistic kid so I foresee a lot more yarn dying in our future. 😁

      You're right. Mom or Grandma is beside the point. I hope y'all have a lot of fun dying, they really like it when they had a piece of the making! The more you do, the more her talent grows and it's all memory making no matter what.

      I started my "Garden Sprinkles" socks. The body of the socks will be green with pink cuffs, heel and toes. The pattern makes a simple textured sock. After a hard day of gardening and processing, I need a simple pattern!

        I'm with you on simple--right now I need a pattern that is easy and mindless with all the gardening and canning! I'll have to dig out my green yarn and get to work!

        Love love love it!!! I think I've mentioned that I am vegetarian, right? Where did you find that fabric?

      Oh this is absolutely perfect for this month! You do such nice work.

      I don't know how this happens - I think I'm posting a comment and it's a post. User error, I know, I know.
