Over the last few days I have been discovering the joys of knitting on honking great big needles. Joys such as being able to knit this
in less than three nights for the pair of them. Yep, they are stashbusting scarfy-wrappy things. I'd actually like to sell them but I have to find the right market first. I have lots more of that sort of thing to knit up.
I haven't abandoned my socks quite yet but I have not knit ANY sock for a day now! That is the first time in ages! Here's the self-striping sock off the needles.
The sharp eyed amongst you, or imaginative might be able to see that I did a sort of graduated lead in to the ribbing at the top.
I started at the sides and worked my way in then worked my way back out again until it was all one by one ribbing. Next time I try this (apart from on the sock mate to this one!) I'll do it every fourth row not every second.
Today was interesting in a dull sort of way. Is that possible? I have some acquisitions to show you but they can wait until tomorrow, along with the tale...
