Torontonians: does it seem like it’s been raining a LOT? I’m starting to get tired of perpetually wet pant-bottoms. Ew. That said, the rain sure sounds nice when I’m all inside and dry with my knitting…
I have finally completed my commission knitting for the time being, so it’s on to bigger and better things!
Pattern: Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush (love that book!)
Yarn: Louet Gems Pearl, dyed by me, 2 skeins
Needles: Knitpicks 2 mm, 32″ circ
Although the divine Ms. Bush calls for 3 skeins of koigu (same yardage as the Louet), I only used 2. Perhaps mine are a bit shorter in the leg than she calls for, but I still had a bit of yarn left from each ball. Whatev, now I have a third skein of this colourway to play with. Maybe anklets?
The knitpicks circs worked really well, especially for those traveling stitches! Addis would never have cut it for me. Unfortunately I did find that my hands tired faster with the metal needles, since I’m not used to them and they are more rigid than the bamboo I’m used to. Ah well, I shall continue to use whatever I have at my disposal.
Lovely pattern indeed, easy to read once you get through a bit of the first chart. The traveling stitches made it easy to keep track of how many rows were on each sock. I LOVE the back of the cuff.
Oh, and I swapped out the gusset heel for a short row one. I don’t have anything againt gusset heels, in fact I have quite a few pairs with one. But I find a short row heel is so nice because you don’t have to count or ever have more stitches than you started with. And now that I’ve got my technique down, it’s short row all the way.
How about some yarn?
This is a skein of 100% tussah silk that I spun up as a 2ply, then dyed a nice deep blue. I have another skein I dyed a great raspberry colour, but it wouldn’t photograph well – now, the question is what to do with them?
