Episode no. 5 of Sweetbay Knits has just been published over on my channel. I meant to publish it long before now, but time got away from me. Since this episode was recorded, I have actually finished a few of my WIPs. I hope to record another episode very soon.
In this episode, I had one finished object. That is my set of Christmas Vanilla Socks, knit in A Homespun Houses’s sock yarn in the color Whobilation. This is actually my last skein of Christmas themed yarn, so I need to be on the lookout for more! You can find out more about this project at my Ravelry Project Page.
I used US0 circular needles with the magic loop method. I cast on 56 stitches, knit 15 rounds for the cuff and 60 rounds for the leg before starting the eye of partridge heel flap. After the gusset increases/decreases, I knit the foot for a women’s size 8 foot and use my favorite toe decreases. A Homespun Houses’s sock yarn is incredibly soft, and I can’t wait to wear these when the holidays are here!

In the video, I also shared my progress with Fall on the Farm. It’s a cross stitch pattern from Little House Needleworks and was offered as a monthly subscription from Fat Quarter Shop. I am taking my time with this pattern and have really enjoyed stitching it.
I also shared some club fiber from Nest Fiber Studio. I don’t have any pictures of it, but you can see it towards the end of the video here.
