Got Gauge??

Posted by allie on February 6, 2007

Well, I was swatching for my Cable Net Socks for Project Spectrum, and I’m 2 stitches off! So instead of buying needles, which I can’t currently afford, I’m just knitting the socks a few sizes smaller. It’s nice when I actually use my head. So I’ve cast-on my socks and knit the first row of ribbing.

This time, in order to avoid SSS (Second Sock Syndrome), I will knit the cuff of one sock, then the other, etc.

Loving lace so much! I am well into the second chart of the Hidcote Shawl and I am LOVING this pattern and so excited with every pattern change. The worst part for me is knitting the WS rows… so many tiny stitches to purl!!

My goal is to finish Wicked by the end of this weekend, so wish me luck. I love the color, pattern, yarn, and the Knitpicks needles. Basically, it’s one of my favorite knits and I am very excited to see it coming along.

    Okay, so when I read your blog, I suddenly want to chant….
    Go Allie, Go Allie, Go, Go, Go!!!
    I suspect there is not an empty needle to be found at your place;)
    It makes me feel all warm & fuzzy inside, knowing I’m not the only one out there on this high fiber diet!
    Love the lace-Beautiful! And Wicked is gonna be so Fab!
    Later,
    Susan

    **You look adorable with your scarf. Very cute;)
