A Demonstration Event


Here is a picture of the pattern considering to use for the Knitting Olympics. Good ole' Patons and their free patterns. I really wanted something with a basic cable right down the middle front, but I shouldn't overwhelm myself with the challenge. Maybe I'll search a bit more on the weekend for the "just the right" sock pattern.

In the meantime, my Single Comfy sock is looking like this: It is shorter than called for because I just want to get right to the foot part. Knit up the heel and toe and figure it all out before I break out the 2.25mm dpns.
I don't know how it is progressing. I wish my sister were around to help me out. It shouldn't be too much a big deal. Even if I have to frog out the entire thing, it still won't take me long to get back on the right track. Well, that's what I'm telling myself.

I was knitting my very first hat over the weekend, and had the same problem - I was eager to get past the boring "knit a big long tube" part and get to the decreases and finishing. Of course (of COURSE!), I didn't knit far enough and ended up with a hat that was about 3 inches too short. It sat quite delicately (and precariously) on top of my head for 2 minutes, and then I frogged the entire thing and started over.

Sigh.
