In a selfless act today, and in a way to ignore crap-o-tee, I casted on for the lovely Elfine socks. I have been thinking about these for months now and even picked up the yarn at Stitches.
That there is some lovely Nature’s Palette in Mallard. And to avoid SSS, I’m ‘magically’ knitting both socks on one 40″ circ addi. It’s so nice that I don’t need two needles for this!
Angela and I are doing a little knit together for these, anyone else want to join? My progress will be slow since I have gift knitting and the whole two socks at once thing. It’s pretty easy to do, just cast on for one (I used a figure 8 co) and knit a couple of rows (I kept going till I increased to 24 sts on each needle). Place the first sock on a holder and then work up the second one to the same point as the first one. Transfer the first sock to the needles, making sure it’s facing the same as the other one, and then knit like normal. So far so good! I have the toes done and I hope to work on the foot a little…if the guilt doesn’t stop me.
