I thought that was a nice thing to do, for those of us, who could not go to Sock Summit. What am I talking about? Jody Pirrello offered up three free sock patterns for us sock crazies in this special issue of Knotions Magazine. Enjoy!
I've finished a pair of socks, no not recently, back in June. It's socks, but it should have been a pair of knee heighs. I did not have enough yarn for that. I only make one bell underneath the big design. The interesting thing though, is the Italian cast on. I like it! I've used it since several times. It looks neat, and it's strechier than the usual long tail cast on I use.
Here you can see how a wonderful knit knee heigh should look like. Her stitch definition is way better than mine.
The yarn is a cheap one, but it's not nice to work with. It's splitty, and as I said, the stitch definition is not great.
pattern: Schachenmayr nomotta, Inspiration Nr.32 # 4331
yarn: elann.com, Sock-It-To-Me in green, 2 balls each 50g
size: womens 10.25"
start-finish: May 19-June 16
This booklet has several other nice twisted stitch knee heigh patterns in it.
I'm a bit in a knitting funk, lost mojo maybe? All I want to do is spin. I've seen people have startitis all over the place, but I don't even want to cast on something new. Picked up my sweater and knit an inch or so, put it away again. I finished all the crochet squares a while ago, and just today I started assembling them, but not really feeling the love for it right now. On the other hand, I've printed out a gazillion new patterns, which I liked, to add to all those others already waiting forever to be knit.
