Pat's Knitting and Quilting
March 4, 2007
The final product from my own hand-dyed yarn ......beautiful socks!!
For my never fail/never flare picot cuff, I use a knitted cast-on, twisting the stitches as I put them on the needle (makes beautiful loops to pick up). I work the hem rows on a one size smaller needle (in this case 2mm) then after my turning round ((yo, K2tog), I change to my regular needle size and knit the same # of rows before picking up my easily seen cast on loops and knitting them with the live stitches.
I think I am the only one that still hasn't received my STR Club kit ....I couldn't wait and cast on a pair of Whitby Socks, from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road, to hold me over. I am using Sheep's Gift (Denim Colorway) from Joslyn's Fiber Farm on 2.75mm circular needles....another pair of Project Spectrum socks.
and Swallowtail is nearing the end.....
