Summer knitting...

This summer was full of adventure for us--a cruise to Alaska and a trip to Denmark and Norway. I did manage to fit in a little knitting, though. First a ruffly scarf made from Red Heart Sashay--quick, easy and an interesting experiment. I just followed the pattern on the ball band.
These Rose Wristers were inspired by my trip to Norway. The pattern comes from "Norwegian Handknits". I found them to be a nice foray into colorwork. I love how colorwork looks, but I'm not sure I'm ready to sign up for anything much larger.
Finally, these fishnet socks got left in Norway with a friend there. In fact, she is modeling them in the photo. The pattern for these is on the Purl Bee blog and I used some leftover yarn from my stash. Hope you all had a nice summer!
