I have been knitting. Socks, in fact. FOR ME.
Pattern: None, really, just simple socks.
Yarn: Gedifra from Webs in autumnal colors.
Needles: Susan Bates #1 DPN's.
Notes: I haven't been able to take these off since I finished them. The yarn is soft and squishy and the tweediness of it enchants me. I really love the way they striped into a sunset and they are oh, so warm. I didn't have a "pattern" for these, but knew I just wanted a nice pair of socks for myself. I cast on 18 stitches on each needles (so, 72 stitches total, I think) and did a bit of twisted ribbing and then went to town on the stockingnette. They are a little boring, but I love them. I have another two balls that I think may be my first attempt at toe-up socks, but I am not sure yet.
I also knit almost an entire Jaywalker out of Lorna's Laces, but had to rip it out when I went to try it on after the heel gussets. My husband helpfully commented "I don't think that is going to fit..." Yeah, and it didn't. At all. I guess I need more stitches with that yarn. I am trying to decide if I should add two stitches to each needle or if I should just knit another pattern with that yarn. Thing is, it is really stripey (which I love) so I don't want too take away from that with lace or any other intricate detail. Maybe I should just do another pair of stockingnette socks? It's the zig-zag pattern that is making the sock tight, so that may work. We'll see.
