Until today, I hadn’t knit anything other than Limerick since the Olympics started – which surprised me, because I get bored easily! I suppose Limerick has enough interest and challenge in it that it kept me entertained – plus the fact that I’ve had less knitting time than usual, really, and I really wanted to give this my best shot.

But I’m now on the neck ribbing, and after I cast off (which will be in about 6 rounds), I’ll be needing to finish the underarms and weave in a bunch of ends. Too fiddly for work knitting. So I took the Ultramerino socks I started awhile ago (the ones that suffered from needle failure). Armed with a slightly smaller Bryspun dpn (it was labeled 3mm but isn’t the same as my caseins) it was off to the races.

Ultramerino socks
Pattern: basic sock, 48 stitches, 3×1 ribbing
Yarn: Artyarns Ultramerino 6, colour 101, 1 skein
Needles: Swallow casein and a Bryspun, 3 mm
Finished: February 24, 2006

I also started a brand new sweater! Black, v-neck, top-down, pullover in Louet Gems Topaz (the worsted weight) to replace this one. Hopefully it’ll wear better!

Back to bit of ribbing and a lot of weaving in ends!

    Love the socks – I have the same yarn in my stash, so it’s nice to see how it’ll knit up.

    Oh, I can tell I’m going to like your new sweater. Because, well, it’s black. :)
