Knits Of June

I haven't done much knitting this month, in fact only two projects.

Over on Instagram, my feed is filled with Rose City Rollers socks - and who can blame them? These socks are adorable, and look great in so many different colour variations.
Of course I had to knit my own! However, I've been on a bit of a toe-up kick ever since I bought the Fish Lips Kiss Heel pattern, it just makes it so easy! I modified the pattern slightly to be toe up and changed out the flk heel - they fit perfectly and are super comfortable!

I'm likely going to make a few more pairs, perhaps even some without modifications - though I can't say when!

My next project I thought would be a top, and once I found a cotton yarn that wasn't too stiff or harsh, I knew I had to make it.  I give you Gemini - published on Knitty, this top can be worn both forward and backward, depending on the look you want.  I love how quick this can be knit, I cast on June 10th and finished the 17th - although it could probably be done a lot faster! I think this is another pattern I'll be repeating, different colours and perhaps a full sleeve one.
