It feels divine, but it was definitely a labor of love. The final edging didn't turn out exactly as I wanted it too, but I'm hoping after I block it, it will be a little less annoying. My measuring skills were wonk city.
I will not lie, as soon as the last end was woven in I couldn't wait to cast on for a new pair of socks. Socks glorious socks. Just something simple I said. I sort of blindly threw my hands in the stash and pulled out a perfectly purplish ball.
I was on auto-pilot for the cast on and ribbing so that dictated what non stockinette pattern I was going to do. It was a 60 stitch cast on so I went with just a basic ribbed stitch.
It's giving me the happy. I secretly plan on knitting on this by headlamp as much as possible this week.
And that brings us to what I REALLY NEED TO DO.
Remember these? I knit them for my friend Annie. She gave them back to me with a small hole, wondering if I could repair it. I thought, hmm. I should learn about this.
That was almost a YEAR ago.
I started trying to repair it, maybe a little too late at night. It didn't work. But when I pulled it out ... I made the hole bigger.
Sigh. Any advice or reference for hole fixing is greatly appreciated.
Good knits and good things to you and yours.
