A little this and a little that

Just a couple of FOs to show off! One was an SIP from my birthday stash and the other was a new project knit from my stash!

So what do some beads and scrumptious yarn turn into??

Correct!! An Odessa hat!

Pattern: Odessa by Grumperina
Yarn: From my stash, I'm thinking Cascade 'Indulgence'
Needles: Size 4 and 6
Mods: none to speak of; 9 pattern repeats before starting the decrease rounds.
Beads: 121 used
Fit: Perfection!

Pattern: Toe-up (figure 8 CO), basic ribbed cuff, my own pattern
Yarn: Sundara 'Drunken Plum' sport weight merino (I heart this yarn! Heart. It.)
Needles: Size 2 dpn
Mods: None...this is my pattern for Pete's sake ;)
Fit: Like a glove! Perfection! These are my best fitting toe-up socks to date!

I LOVE the pics you took of those beads. They look so buttery. I think I may need to knit myself an Odessa after seeing your pic!

I love Sundara's sport weight yarn as well and was hoping you'd share a little more about your wonderful pattern...how many stitches, 48? and what heel, short row? It's the perfect sock! I want one!!!

That Odessa hat is just wonderful - having felt it in person, I can attest to it's extreme softness and how beautiful it is! Great job G!

Also, I really love those Sundara socks - looks like you need some more sportweight!

oh, nk, what gorgeous projects you have been working on.

that bead shot is awesome - looks, as someone higher up in comments said, perfectly, like buttah.
