I have a pair of worsted-weight house socks finished. I like them, and I’m getting over the holes I knit into them, but they’re just enough too big for my feet that they drive me crazy. Mom’s coming over today, and if she likes them, she can have them.
I’m also working on a pair of no-pattern socks with Felici spooky – which I bought before they decided to discontinue Felici. It’s Judy’s magic cast-on, increase to 56, 3×1 rib on the top half of the foot (need 1.5” more here), then I will do a Fleegle heel and 3×1 rib on the leg. I really don’t like striping yarn of this size. I like smaller stripes or hand-painted/tonal a lot better.
Can anyone help me with a pattern question? I like the look of the lace for sockophilia on Ravelry, but I wanted something completely different (a shawl or cardigan). http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sockophilia But can anyone tell me what type of lace that is (or what I should be looking for) so I can try to find a shawl pattern? I’m looking for a word or phrase that I can put into a search engine that might help me find something similar. I’m having no luck and would prefer not to pay for a pattern that (probably) won’t help me with what I really want. 3 days ago
