Well. I followed the decreases for the thumb from the Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns, and that didn’t work out so well.
I had a big ugly blob of stitches at the end where I drew the yarn end through. I must’ve ripped it out five times! Eventually I did my own thing – just knit straight till the end, then k2tog around, then thread the end through the stitches.
Pattern: my own, for my tiny hands
Yarn: Knitpicks Sock Garden, 2 skeins (yarn held double)
Needles: 3 mm dpns
Finished: November 17, 2005
And here’s a big pile o’ Koigu – all the hexagons for the skirt are DONE!
The piles in the back are the first and third tiers, and are all connected into their respective tiers. The pile in the front is the middle tier, not yet all connected. There’s a whole lotta finishing let to do though – check out all those ends!
