“Fetching” in Process

Posted by mtmom on December 20, 2009

I’m making a change to this iconic pattern from knitty.  I didn’t like how the picot bind-off made the top flare. . .

Before:  off the needles .

Before:  back of handBefore:  side view.

. . . so I undid the Bo and bound off just in purl.  (Isn’t it great when you can make it do what you want?! — at least, mostly.)

After:  off the needlesAfter:  palm After:  side view I also redid the BO on the thumb (after this photo), and am about halfway through knitting the second — about 3 rounds until thumb trick!

The yarn has arrived for summer Cast On project, so my next post will likely talk about that.  Ever heard of “1/2 N 1/2”?  ( I hadn’t — this’ll be a new experience! )

If I don’t talk to you again before Friday:

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
