Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

Soooo Close!

. . . to finishing Level 2, that is.

I finished the swatches and their write-ups in Dec ’08, and the last of the questions in Jan/Feb ’09.  This past week, I polished the history report I’d begun last month and updated the bibliography.  I have written the first of 4 book reviews — don’t know why this part has been such a block for me — and picked out the next title from my shelf.  The Neon Argyle is the last bit of the knitting portion, and the knitting itself is done.  I’m currently embroidering the cross-lines.  Some don’t especially like duplicate stitch, but I find it quite soothing. Here, you see the sock-ness of the sock.

Here, I’ll show just the front, before and after half of the duplicate stitch embroidery.

    I am always learning something new from the blogs I read. I had not realized that the lines going thru the argyle was embroidered. How interesting!

    Actually, that’s a choice the knitter makes. You can embroider the lines after the knitting, *or* you can knit them in as you go. I’ve tried both in the process of swatching for these socks, and I prefer the embroidery option.
