These socks are for me. The yarn is from Ellen's 1/2 Pint Farm that I bought a couple of years ago at MDSW. Bright and cheerful and getting close to done!
For stay-at-home knitting, I've been working on couple of other things. One is this hat:
It looks done, but alas! It has been frogged, ready to start again. See the stitches below? They are so uneven and BIG and little and BIG and little! I did the whole hat, and even stretched and washed and blocked it, but the stitches were not even-ing up. Not no way, not no how.
I was trying to knit with one yarn in my left hand and one in my right, and trapping the floats rather than twisting. I know I've used two handed knitting before, with a finished product at the end, but I guess that plus the long floats was too difficult for me to master. Plus, I never got comfortable doing it. Blech.
Now it's been ripped out and ready to do following my regular method of drop-this-yarn-and-pick-up-that-one. It might actually be more work, but not when I consider having to do it over again.
