Beautiful Knitting

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

One Hat, One Sock

Posted by mtmom on March 8, 2009

Two FO’s this week:

(1)  The top-down cap in Berrocco “Geode”, color #3656: 

Nice

striping,

eh?

Recipient

loves it!

.

Neat stuff

on the top, too,

if I may say so myself.

(My own design!) 

And (2)  Purl-sided sock — a singelton so far — for DD:The part I was so eager to try?

. . . the “afterthought leg”, derived from Cat Bordhi’s “Houdini Socks” pattern in Fall 2008 issue of Twist Collective.  Where she snipped, I used the thumb trick. 

Then, I

pick up

2 rows of

stitches

and remove

the waste

yarn.

And look what you use those stitches for:  Clever, eh?!

I planned to put a cable in the purl-panel, and turned to Elsebeth Lavold’s book Viking Patterns for Knitting.  See what it turned into: 

.

Nice for

a little

girl,

I think.

.

Keeps turning out too long, but I took some rounds out after finishing.

.

Still no news on my Master Knitter materials.   I don’t really expect to hear for another several weeks.
