FO’s and Soctoberfest!

October 14, 2005

First off – a finished OSW (I think this is my third?) I’m still learning how to tweak the pattern – brilliant me figured out the stitches between the markers correspond to the shoulder-to-shoulder measurement – so if my guage is off all I need to do is figure out how many stitches match that measurement and STOP. Though I think her idea of 18 inches is smaller than mine….

Next – Hillary‘s Turtleneck Shrug for Stitch ya neck out

I’ve enjoyed working on this (no seams! How exciting!) though I was frustrated to run out of yarn despite being on gauge and having the amount of yarn the pattern called for. It’ll go out in the mail soon.

Lastly, I joined Lolly’s Soctoberfest
And learned how to do a figure 8 cast on – I have to say I like toe up socks now that I’ve done a pair (more so than the cuff down socks I learned on from Weekend Knitting) Seems easier to customize to your feet and yarn.

    The yarn you are using for the socks is so pretty! Can’t wait to see more.

    Love the shrugs too 🙂

    I second Lolly – great yarn! I just learned the invisible cast-on (kirtchner ribbing cast on in my book) and really like the cuffs on my newest pair of socks. Happy Socktoberfest!
