My Knitting List

(Formerly) On The Needles - 4/26/13

I finished my socks for the pooling challenge.  The only part that pooled was the heel, but I LOVE them anyways.  I used Size 2 needles with 54 stitches.  The yarn is Lorna's Laces Solemate in colorway "Cool".  The second sock I knit an additional 4 rows before starting the gusset and it fits much better.  I also did the Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off (JSSBO) for the second sock and it fits over my heel much better when I slide them on.




At the moment I don't have anything on the needles because I'm waiting for May 1st to cast on for MadMay.  My plan is to knit a shawl and knit the Fjord hat that goes with the cowl I knit a couple weeks ago.

Visit Judy's blog to find out what other's have on their needles.

Forgot to post the pattern name:   I knit the toe-up pattern Ampersand (Upside Down).  It is based on the original pattern Ampersand which is cuff-down.  Both are free on Ravelry.
