1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Boyfriend Socks on: June 20, 2007 01:49:14 PM
I finished my first pair of socks, which I knit for my fiance (not my boyfriend anymore, but the title is catchier).

I hope the sweater curse doesn't apply to footwear! I used about 1-1/2 balls of Regia Stripe, Blue-green colorway, on size 2 needles. I didn't use any one specific pattern - I concatenated a few different top-down sock patterns, including from Silver's Sock Class.

My fiance claims I was too impatient and I knit the legs too short. Next time I knit socks for my Significant Other, I'll do them toe up so he can decide how high he wants them! But otherwise he says their perfect (although it's too hot for him to wear them yet!)

You can see from this picture that the stripes don't match up exactly; I'm trying to let that go and not obsess about it. There's a little bit more info about other problems I had with this sock at the completion post on my blog.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Branching Out, rather late. on: May 13, 2007 11:05:36 AM
I finished my very own Branching Out! It took me about 3 weeks, off and on.

I used up about 1/2 a skein of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (the color is Claret), and it came out to be the perfect length for a headband or faux-ascot. Now, I can make another lacy scarfelet in the same color.

There are more details in a post on my blog.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with linen stitch on: January 24, 2007 04:45:16 PM
Hi all,
This is only my second knitting project - I'm working on the Knit Wallet from Knitting with Balls and the linen stitch they present is really confusing me! (this is my first non stockinette, non rib, non garter stitch!).

I cast on an odd number of stitches, then started the linen stitch below:

1: K1 *Sl 1 pwise wyif K1 repeat from * to end
2: P2 *Sl 1 pwise wyib P1 repeat from * to end P1.

However, with an odd number of stitches, I keep ending that second row with a slipped stitch, not with a purl stitch? Am I supposed to do 2 purl stitches at the end of the second row? (other linen stitch patterns I've looked at have presented similar problems).
