Purple Knits

Happy New Year everyone! My first outfit post of the 2014 is actually from 2013, I just didn't get around to posting it. This was one of my holiday outfits. The top and socks were both knit by me. The top I made a couple years ago and was adapted from a 1920s pattern. The socks were done with my favourite free sock pattern, which can be found here. They are super easy, and knitted flat so you can easily do two at a time.

The yarn I used for these socks was Queensland Collection Leché and one of the nicest yarns I've had the pleasure of using. It has milk protein in it and is incredibly soft. Handknit socks are such a luxury. This pair cost about $25 in yarn and would be closer to $250 if I included my labor. But boy are they worth it!

Well back to the sewing machine. I'm hoping to get another batch of clothing for the shop released sometime in January, and maybe sew a few things for myself too! 

I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year!

That's All.


  1. Gorgeous ensemble! Grey + purple is one of my favourite colouring pairings of all-time.
