So this week I finished the socks and I am very happy with them. I had to rip out 17 rows of the first sock so I could match up the amount of yellow I had left, but it was an easy re-knit. The gusset uses the riverbed architecture so the gusset is under the instep - very cool idea.
On Monday my niece, who teaches biology at at local college, asked me to knit her this. It was a cool knit and both of us are happy with the result. Here is the link to the pattern and the double helicies can be done with colourwork like I did, or with cables. AND it is a free pattern.
My dh was a good sport and modeled it for this pic:
I have done 13 repeats on my peace cowl. I pick it up when I need to do a relaxing knit and I find the repetition of the pattern is very soothing.
I did another ten rows on my christening blanket
and another inch on my Cookie A socks. I am still doing these two at a time, but on two separate pairs of needles because my circular needle wasn't cooperating and I spent more time fighting with the loop than knitting. Now things are going much smoother.
My tibetan socks were the only wip that didn't get any attention this past week. I'll probably pick them up again soon.
Happy yopping everyone. The sun is out, the snow is melting AND I got to the pool three times this week plus a yoga class.
So things are looking up.
That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
