Pat's Knitting and Quilting
January 20 , 2008
6 repeats in and I could see there was a problem - just look at the bias on these socks! They are swirling around my leg and who knows how they will fit over my heel and foot.
After looking at the Ravelry Nutkin projects, I realized I was not alone (although some people have made changes in the pattern to correct this problem by mirroring the swirls instead of having them all flow in the same direction). I consulted, via a flurry of emails, with my long time blog friend, Shirley, who I knew was also making Nutkins, and ..... I (we) frogged! I really like this Lorna's Laces yarn (much prettier than the color in these pictures) and now I have it in 2 nice yarn cakes waiting for the right pattern.
Isn't that a cool thumb gusset? I'm loving this pair of mittens!
My current plan is to knit at least 2 sweaters for the Children in Common (CIC)Knitting Yahoo Group toddler sweater/vest challenge. This one is going to be a little Nordic yoke pullover and I'm going to guess it will be done soon because I can't wait to get to the yoke! You'll get all the details as soon as it's done. Knitting little sweaters is so much fun!
