Today I’ve been working on Brandons next pair or socks and winding some yarn into two cakes for a pair of socks for myself.
I knit for myself, and occasionally (actually, quite a lot) for my boyfriend. That’s it, that’s who I knit for.
After being voluntold by various people to “Knit me X” I’ve now decided on my new response:
"I will knit you X when you buy me a lap giraffe."
I have yet to properly test it, but I will keep you updated.
They’re coming from Scotland, from a lovely woman on Ravelry, and, once they get here, will be caked, swatched, and knitted up into Ink
A current WIP.
Yet ANOTHER pair of socks for Brandon, this time, no fancy yarn, he asked for 100% acrylic, so this is in Patons Smoothie DK, on 3.5mm needles.
The stitch pattern (the blue) is garter rib, which is worked over two rounds: Rnd1: k2, p2 Rnd2: knit.
I’m actually on the very bottom of the body right now, doing 5 mammoth inches of 2x1 rib, but I can’t get a good photo, will upload one later.
This is from not long after I cast on, (Julissa is a top-down raglan, so the ribbing you see is the collar) as you can see, happily working on the lace.
That is, before the lace decided to bite me, twice.
I made one mistake, and because I was cocky, I hadn’t put lifelines in (I did after, a lot!) so I had to rip back and pick up a hundred or so live stitches, not fun, then it bit me again, and I didn’t realise until I’d done 20 or so rows, but it’s not noticeable and it’s easily fixed.
Important lesson learnt: ALWAYS used lifelines when knitting lace.
