It’s not that I’ve frittered the time away this morning – it’s that the computer has been unusually obstructive, even for it. Either way, having at last got this far, I must be brief.
The v-neck vest is still an inch short of the armpits. I hope to reach that point today and thread the stitches on waste yarn for my husband to try on at bedtime. Separate lengths of waste yarn for front and back, as I will proceed separately from here. No steeking this time.
I am pretty confident about size, although I seem to be getting more stitches to the inch than I did in the swatch. (That’s the trouble with swatching.) Both of the electric red Brownstones I knit last year came out large, despite careful attention to sizing. I am hoping for some leeway here.
That may leave time for a few more rounds on Ketki’s Van Gogh socks. Plan for the day.
Miscellaneous from Zite
Simply Sock Yarn wants knitters to test the sock yarns people send her. What a job! She’ll have a million applications, but I just thought I’d mention it.
I kind of like this faintly ridiculous pattern. I’ve had my eye on Kauni for a while. Lower neck, over a white shirt?
An infinitely kind blog reader in
has sent me Neatby’s “Cool Socks Warm Feet” claiming she doesn’t want it. It
promises to make a useful contribution to the Great Sock Project which will start soon,
I hope. My husband has been complaining that he doesn’t like the fit of the
Outre Socks, just completed. Neatby has what looks like a good section on fit
which I will use alongside Gibson-Roberts. Ohio
I’ll still be knitting madelinetosh by Easter, but I’ll take a tape measure to Loch Fyne and size everybody’s feet.
