I recently started my September Socks, but the yarn is giving me a great deal of trouble. I started out by casting on for the Caretta Caretta socks from "Socktopus"...
So now I've ripped back again, and have cast on for My Cup of Tea Socks HOPING that third time's the charm, and I'll actually be motivated to finish these socks!
... It's not all wasted though - I did realize that I like the twisted rib a LOT better than a plain 1-1 rib - it looks heaps more polished.
Fortunately my other project is behaving a lot better. I cast on for the Little Pole less than two weeks ago and am loving it!
Off the Needles
I finally finished my Terra Linda Cardigan! I'm not entirely sure whether I'm thrilled or disappointed though.. It grew so much during blocking, and now has a completely different (although not necessarily bad) fit compared to prior to blocking.
But if this one might be too big, I fear that my other project might be too small! I'll admit to being rather proud of this project though, as I knit it with my own handspun! I'd been thinking that it would make the perfect hat for my niece-to-be (due right after Christmas), so I found a suitable pattern, cast on, and 2 hours later, this was the result!
And if not, at least it fits Peanut perfectly ;)
