I’m still struggling along with Project 2. Sunday night I discovered that I’d been doing the traveling row increase of the German Stocking in the wrong place, just as I was about to start the heel. I debated either switching to the correct side, or continuing on the wrong side as I worked the foot, but after looking at the first sock, I decided it would look different visually and it would bother me, so I ripped back about 5 inches to do the increases in the proper place. I’ve worked 5 pattern repeats and have 2 more to go before I’m back to where I ripped out at. Not the best picture of the sock (cell phone camera), but it does show where I’m currently at.
This is the only thing I’ve been working on for the last week and a half. I thought I’d be done by now and I probably would have been if it weren’t for having to rip back! Ah well. Getting close now. I think I’ll be able to finish it with a little time to spare, so long as I knit like the wind! My hands look forward to a break after these are done. The tiny needles have been a little rough on me with this project and I’m looking forward to knitting that worsted weight cardigan starting next week. 🙂
I have to take a minute and talk about the bag you see pictured with my German Stocking above. It was a gift to me from my friend Karen. She makes great bags of all sorts as well as e-reader cases and pretty much any kind of sewn accessory you’d want. I have a purse and a few other bags from her and all of them have held up very well. She loves custom orders and will work with you on anything you might want! She will even do custom embroidery of just about anything you want. She has some pictures of bags she’s made here and you can email her by clicking this link here. Here’s a better look at my Hello Kitty bag.
Time to grab some lunch and squeeze in a little knitting time. 🙂
