Time for a mid week check in on the knitting and reading . . .…
On Friday I asked what you were all planning on doing with your extra hour this weekend when daylight savings time ended. I used mine to finish a pair of socks for Socktoberfest.
This yarn, which I loved in the skein, was a challenge to knit into something I loved. My first attempt was my usual plain stockinette but it was striping in a way that I didn’t like. My second attempt was a simple 2×2 rib and while that worked, it still didn’t sing to me.
Turns out the third attempt was the charm and I love the yarn knit in this Dragonfly Pattern.
The stripes aren’t as obvious and the colors combine in a pleasing way.
There’s just one problem. They don’t fit me. Oh well, I guess a knitter can’t have everything.
