Just one more row...just one more row...ok, I'll just stay up to finish them. The sockapal2za socks:
Ready to go for a wash and get put away until shipping time.
Started: July 13, 2005.
Finished: July 25, 2005.
Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit Cotton colour #24
Pattern: Broken Cable Rib Socks from IK webknits
Adjustments: I cast on 84 sts to make the proper size for the recipient. I also only did 3 repeats of the broken cable as opposed to the 7. My sockpal likes her socks short.
I definitely will be making a pair for myself in this pattern, I think in black!
Deciding I couldn't cast on a third time the other day for the Ene's scarf, I started some simple socks for my DH in some lovely knit picks yarn...
Of course, I did emerge victorious from the awful mess of the other night. I cast on and started again yesterday. Here is the progress on Ene's from Scarfstyle...only 13 rows in:
This photo doesn't really show the deep red colour at all...it is the colour of the photo's in the post below.
Silly girl. I don't know what was happening, but when I picked it up to start again, no problems. Not a one.
I am loving this knit. The pattern is gorgeous, and as many of you have commented, so it the colour. On the third attempt, the current attempt, I switched to US#6 needles. The pattern does call for this size, but I do knit tight and always have to go up a size. Well, I didn't like the stitches with the #7 on the first 2 attempts so I went down a size.
