I’ve been knitting and crocheting a good deal this past week, but unless you happen to bump into me (which I don’t recommend as I’m using 1.5mm needles, albeit a circ) I can’t show you yet.
I can, however, show you a FO.
“Simple Serenity” socks (ravelry project page)
Pattern: Earl Grey Socks by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee ravelry pattern page, stephanie’s
Yarn: Regia 4-fädig in #44 (a light grey)
Needles: 2.5mm circs (one 12" one 16" I can’t find the other 12, but I think I like this config better)
Size: my foot.
Mods: Everything. Toe up with my regular toe, Wendy’s new heel (pdf), and I forgot to flip the chart so it is what it is. I love them and that’s what matters. I’ve gotten better at reading cables while knitting these (if you call a twist a cable) so there may be more cables in my future… I tend to stay away from patterns which require counting as that’s difficult at 6am and on the train.
What would I change? The yarn doesn’t have the stitch definition for the cables that I’d like. I’d like to fix my chart flip so that all the cables look nice like Stephanie’s.
Will I knit this again? Yes. It’s a fun pattern and it was very relaxing to knit.
I had hoped to be on the first chart for seraphim today, but I am not and no where near as I’ve not touched it in over a week. Thank you sinuses. I had hoped to have completed anouk but was playing with the stealth projects (and ripping a good deal) instead. We’ll see what the coming week brings as some clients have reappeared and well, paying attention to them may should provide some money for stash enhancement soon. It’s chilly so it definitely makes me want to work on my neglected Veste. Once I finish these stealth projects I’ll be casting on Bellatrix, though I need to located both 2.0mm needles first. I know, what about those socks for mum or E I promised them eons ago? I’m selfish. It’s a problem for another post.
