Whitby from Nancy Bush Knitting on the Road. Knit in the pattern yarn – Louet Gems Pearl (fingering weight), colour caribou, on DPNs 1.75mm/00.
What I actually did: Knit on 59 stitches to accomodate my gauge. On the second sock, the heel flap is longer (maybe 20 instead of 17 chain stitches?). I added arch shaping as described in Meg Swansen’s Knitting.
I’d be happy to knit these again, and I might! (on a couple more stitches) They’re very satisfying. The yarn felt a bit hard and stringy as I knit, but in the finished sock it feels lovely. I know yarn is string, but it’s not kitchen string! Would you rather eat a sweet muffin out of a snack machine or still warm from my oven? (I bake good muffins)
Still not the baby sweater.
