Pat's Knitting and Quilting
April 11, 2009
It wasn't fast, but what fun it was watching this tessellating mosaic pattern develop!
Pattern: Curlicue by Robyn Gallimore (Patternfish download) of Red Bird Knits. This was the January SOTM from my quarterly sock club membership.
Slip stitch is much slower than stranded colorwork since each pattern round is worked twice. The good news is that only one color is used at a time (2 rounds of red/ 2 rounds of black etc.), which is nice for those who don't like to strand colors. There is also more texture in slip stitch patterns than in fair isle or stranded colorwork - I love the texture in these socks!
a few other angles....
We leave on Friday for a family vacation in Virginia where we are hoping for lots of warmth and sunshine - I don't know if I'll get another post up before we leave, but I've figured out my very important knitting plans for the trip, which include a new sweater that I just cast on last night.
