Trekking KAL Socks

Way back in January, Trekking yarns began a  KAL which went from January to June.  The patterns were mostly socks and were provided by Knit Purl Hunter and are available for free on her website.  The KAL was very popular and there were some great prizes, including a trip for two to Trekking yarns with a thousand dollar shopping spree.  I joined in and completed the first pair, but never got beyond that.   My friend Jamie completed all six and I stopped by to see her to see what the completed socks looked like:



Here's a closer look at her socks.  This is the Center of Attention socks and Reciprocation



These two are Stripes Alive and Cranked:


A closer look at Cranked:


This is Lacery:



This pattern is called Fluttered, probably because of the Butterfly stitch:


Jamie's a very accomplished sock knitter, but she has also knit other types of challenging projects like  the Lizard Ridge afghan for her daughter when she went off to college.  The yarn she used was Noro's Kureyon:

Here's a pillow she made using a pattern from Debbie Abraham's afghan book:

I understand that there will be another KAL this Fall so check out Knit Purl Hunter's web site for more details.
