Today however, I give you my first socks!
|Isn't the color pretty!|
|My first socks!|
You may have noticed that I am knitting on size 2 needles with a 9" circular cable. I like this method so far, as I am a little leery about double pointed needles and magic loop seems a little scary to the untested. I will let you know how this goes along but I am liking the results so far.
I have to admit, I am annoyed at myself with the ribbing. I can knit at a decent pace when I knit continental but I haven't mastered purling in continental so I am throwing and the progress is a little slow going. I guess good things come to those who wait, so this will really test my patience.
In other WIP news I am working on my Merlot Hat and it made some nice progress last night as well granted DK does work up faster than fingering. It was strange going from Size 2 needles to Size 8, they felt so clumsy in my hands.
|Oh how I love this green!|
