Still no camera, but I’ve finished the On Your Toes socks. I made them with about two inch cuffs because 1) I’m impatient, and 2) I really don’t like wearing long socks. I’m very happy with them, and have enough of the KnitPicks yarn to make mini wrist warmers to match (which I’ve cast on already). The pattern called for a sewn bind off, but Interweave didn’t give directions which differentiate between knit and purl stitches, so I used Jenny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off instead, and am very happy with the results.
After reading “Making Mathematics with Needlework” I’m totally confused about the way I form knit stitches – I knit Continental, but am I wrapping backwards? Now I’m not sure, so I’m trying to change my technique a bit with the mini wrist warmers. We’ll see how that goes.
There’s a sock yarn giveaway at Knit 1 Blog One (I went for the Malabrigo, because I don’t have any).
There’s also a fabulous giveaway at Implausible Yarn. Yes, the prizes are fabulous (I chose the Royal Lama Silk), but the question is too.
