Haven’t won any of the previous contests, so here is another one. Purls Entwined is hosting a sock pattern giveaway (deadline is the 21st).
The cuffs are working well. I’ve gotten to the split for the thumb. I slipped six stitches onto waste yarn, and cast on fourteen with a reverse loop. I thought I’d be clever, and break the yarn then cast on with something particularly clever, but really messed myself up and went back to basics. Just one more set of ends to work in, right?
I’m knitting the new stitches in two by two rib, like the rest of the cuffs (did I even mention that before? They’re to match the socks) and decreasing every few rows. Seems to be working well so far. Still wish I had a camera…
Meanwhile, DH has asked for a hat. Unfortunately not one which looks like a pokeball, one he’d actually wear. So I’ve found a nice Raglan Hat pattern on Ravelry, and gotten some wool. Second WIP coming soon!
