Have a great weekend!
I bought them all and used some on a skein of Knit Picks Bare fingering yarn. I’ll show it to you as soon as it dries…which might take a day or two what with all the muggy, rainy weather we’ve been experiencing.
Anyone have an idea for all the wire egg dippers I have accumulated??
The Handmade Sock Society third pattern, Cliff Walk, is beautiful. But the yarn I chose is not working with this pattern.
Plus I’m not enjoying the feel of the yarn while knitting, nor the finished part so far. It’s coarse and not soft. Maybe that’s due to the cotton content. I don’t know.
But I DO know that I will begin anew with a different yarn. My old stand-by: Knit Picks Stroll. Midnight Heather is a rich deep blue. (I’d rather use a tonal but I don’t have any in my stash that I’m willing to use for socks. The yardage for those yarns is enough for some shawls and I’d hate to use some and not have enough for later.)
I only have 56 grams in this dye lot and will need about 70-80 grams. I might use black for the cuffs, heels, and toes…
…or dye some Knit Picks Stroll Bare that I do have in my stash.
I cut the tip of my index finger on my right hand last week and I can’t seem to get anything done…well, stuff that I want to do.
I’m an English style knitter where the yarn is held in my right hand as opposed to a continental style where the yarn is held in the left hand. I “can” knit continental but it’s not that intuitive for me. Or fun. Plus I have one more fingerless mitt to finish and my gauge would definitely be off if I changed styles now. And bandages just get in the way. So no knitting for me.
But I could dye some yarn…
