Here is a progress shot of Tubey. As you can see I messed up the ribbing a ways back, I did not notice it until I looked at this picture. Well Shit. Now what? I could Rip out 6" of body and knit again or I could leave it and finish the thing. I am thinking of just leaving it and calling it a lesson learned.I am a lazy person after all. Also I am starting to think this sweater is going to be very warm. The Wool of the Andes has a nice woolly texture but is not very soft.I don't know if I will get much wear out of it. If I ever knit this pattern again I would choose a different yarn. WotA is only $1.99 per ball So this is a $20.00 learning experience. I tend to be on the thrifty side with yarn if I am knitting something I have never tried before. I have a fear of creating something awful out of beautiful yarn. I am getting more and more confidante with my knitting with each project. I have ordered some silk blend yarn for my next project. I can't wait to try it. As I knit more I want better yarn.
The Waving Lace Sock is slow going. For some reason I just can't do SSK right. Stupid left hand. I need to get that one down. I have looked at pictures but I just don't get it. I think I will ask the nice lady at the LYS to show me. I have one pretty mangled repeat done. I think I will practice with one more repeat and then frog and start over. I don't want one messed up sock and one nice sock. I am using Knit Picks Memories yarn. it is variegated. I think it is a little busy for this pattern. I think I might dye some yarn for when I start over. A solid perhaps.
Speaking of dyeing yarn I have a green skein in the pot right now. See I got the Favorite Sock book because I want to knit the Embossed Leaves socks. I think green is the perfect color for this pattern. Gotta get that SSK first but I will have the yarn all ready. I will show it off when it is dry.
I am still waiting to hear form my HSKP pal again. I have not heard from her in a week or so. My kit was received. I will post a link later.
