Yesterday I knit a the movie theatre for the first time – while watching 300.
The movie was great and the knitting went very well. I made one little mistake, which I thought was bigger than it was. My bigger goof was not turning the heel in such a way that the mistake would be on the back – instead it is going to be on the top of the sock. (And naturally it couldn’t have happened in the middle of a block of colour, no it had to happen where there was just one row of a colour – geesh!)
(these socks are in Austermann Step, and are for moi)
The night before I’d cast on this sock, again for movie watching. It is the first ball of the hand-dyed stuff, and I’m making them up for a friend. NTS- ease up on the purple next time, blue finger tips are not sexy. I’m obviously going to need to do another rinse before I give them away… But I am rather excited about the fact that the stripes actually worked.
