Thank you for all the nice comments on the Conwy socks! The pattern is in Knitting on the Road, one of my favorite sock books. The pattern for the Hundertwasser socks is essentially a simple k3 p1 rib, which I found in Knitting Vintage Socks. Why do math when someone has already designed the exact sock I want to knit?
There has been some progress on the Baltic Sea Stole. I'm using US5 needles, and the solid portions are turning out to be not much more solid than the lacy bits. I'm not sure if I'm happy with this and have even thought about frogging.
Here's a closeup. This is the fabric laid out flat, a little scrunched together. If I block it, the stitches will get even bigger. It looks like a hot mess, but then, lace always does until you block it. So... is this fugly? To frog or not to frog? What do you think?
A little progress on the sister socks, but not much. I'm loving the yarn, and I'm waiting for my sister to send me her foot measurements. I know I took them when I was in Germany, but I forgot to write them down. Duh!
And that's it for knitting progress this week. Why? Well, here's the reason (please excuse the frumpy nightie shot, it isn't even 7 am over here):
Some form of RSI induced by knitting with cotton. If you're going to knit with cotton, you need to take frequent breaks, or it'll hurt to knit. It's a bad thing.
