WIP: Plan of Attack
Basically the edge looked too big, and when I thought I had gone down a needle size I had gone up one. How does that happen? Well Addis are narrow at the tips? Okay, I just didn't pay attention when reaching into my bag to switch down needle sizes.
I ripped it out, re-threaded that puppy and finished the bottom ribbing with the appropriate needle size. I was hoping to have finished the bottom AND one sleeve last night. I'll have the entire thing done by the end of the weekend, at the latest.
I did finally fix and cast off that first Winter sock. (I won't post a photo till the pair is completed properly, that could be ages) ... but is it so bad that I'm thinking I want to start a spring pair?
I pulled out a pair of dpns and some yarn I got in Kathy B's fall swap! :)
It looks like growing things right? I am thinking just a pair of stockinette socks. I've never done that before, so why not now?
The pink sock is on the backburner again, but thanks to Nothingbutknit who heard my neurotic pleas for help I am back on track. I need to bang out another baby knit and I'll return to this project.
Notice how she's found yet another twisting sock pattern!
I've decided I'll postpone the rest of my sock knitting adventures that I've had so many encouraging recommendations for with magic loop sock knitting. 2 on one, 2 on 2 circulars etc for the summer, when I don't have ... gifts I'm knitting. Maybe I'll manage 2 of the techniques over the season?
What's in progress for you? What's in your knitting future?
On a completely unrelated note. I have a great debate with HM on just how cute I think Prince George is. (he's a baby, he's a royal baby, but whatever) I say cute. She says, not so much... not even a meh. How can she be so wrong?
