So this week I have an FO to show, albeit a cheat:
Pattern: Sugar Maple Socks from 2-at-a-time Socks
Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit Cotton 100
Needles: 2.5mm circs
This was meant to be done 2 at a time, but I failed miserably and just did them one at a time.
On a good note, as per my previous post, I have obtained a ball winder so I will try again and am sure I will prevail!
I have cast on for another pair of socks in the meantime...
Pomatomus Socks by Cookie A from Knitty.
I have been dying to make these socks so here I go. I feel like socks are all I have been making recently, but they are perfect commutev (car) knitting, so I laways have some on the go.
The tangled yoke saga continues. I got to round 7 of the cable chart and all was going swimmingly, but I omitted 2 stitches from each repeat up to the centre, so I have to rip back to the beginning of the row and start again. Boo. I have ripped back so many times that the yarn is nearly beginning to felt! It's in time-out now until the weekend when I will have time and patience to devote to it.
I have also cast on for my first colourwork project! I am truly a fearless knitter lol. It may all go belly up, but at least I'm trying! It's a pattern one of the girls in my SnB gave me for a pair of argyle socks.
These are the colours I'm thinking of using:
The pink will be the main colour and I'll figure the others out as I go.
I've got as far as the beginning of the colour chart, and am terrified to go any further! I just don't know what to do next!
I downloaded the ebook, Stranded Color Knitting by Nanette Blanchard so I'll try and follow that and see how I go.
Exciting or frustrating times ahead! Let's hope it's more of the former than the latter...
I also picked up the Spring/Summer edition of Vogue Knitting yesterday. I am mad keen to make the gorgeous blue lacy top that's near the back! It's just gorgeous! I'm amazed that they have a garment I'd actually wear; usually they are very "conceptual" and that it's patterened in a size that will fit me! yay!
