one sock done
I put the sock in the scanner to take the pic...because I'm not speaking to joe at the moment. it came out ok, even tho it's a bit cramped in there. the scanner, that is...not the sock. I really have no desire to cast on for a 2nd sock at the moment so instead I cast on for..........Clapotis....yes, that's right. I wasn't thrilled by it. It looked almost exactly like the magic shawl where you knit in stockinette until you feel like puking & then drop the stitches (yes, that IS the best part) only I did mine in Berroco Suede & it kept sticking to my fingers & I kept having to stop, emery board my hands, & pile on lotion. then I made it too darn short because I just couldn't stand knitting it anymore. anyway, this is a bit different. it's diagonal. its got "knit in the back loops" which I like alot. And this time I'm using Mountain Colors in a dark black/purply really soft yarn on size 5 addi's so yes, I'm enjoying it a bit more. I have to admit. I saw Gracie from the yarn shop in 1 that she just made out of SWTC bamboo or soy or something & it was really stunning. I like to copy things I see, didja notice???
and thank you to Colette (the knit witch) for directing me to a wonderful penguin pattern to knit for my son's GF!!!
