This week (knitting-wise) two things happened. Good news first.
I just received my first skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Lightweight.
I’ll use it for my next design, which I hope to have completed soon, so stay tuned.
Next: the good but not-so-good news.
I finished my first pair of colourwork socks. (The Ravelry project page is here.)
One turned out really good!
The other one … Well, I’ve been working on them on and off since February, so I really don’t want to take it out.
So now I’m going to be all depressed and everything until I rip my whole sock out. (Take a look at that cuff. It starts out large and gets smaller all the way down. I need more practise.)
But I’m pretty happy with the first sock!
And, let’s face it: Good yarn makes poorly-made socks a whole lot tolerable!
Now, you colourwork knitters are probably shaking your heads in disgust wondering what is it that’s wrong with me. I’m sorry. Colourwork is not my strong suite. But these socks will not be the end of my more-than-one-color endeavors! I’ve got my eye on a cardigan (which is very strange for me to say, because I think that all things that resemble sweaters are over-rated) that has a colourwork yoke …
So, if you more talented colourwork knitters would give me as many tips as you think I could possibly use, that would be greatly appreciated.
