my roza’s socks are flying along…quite an addictive pattern. the slick metal knitpicks needles and the smooth yarn just seem right together. and the fabric created has just the right amount of ‘cush’.
i used the recommended size 0 needles…however, i’m finding them to be more snug than i expected. i am a tight knitter…but i would definitely go up a needle size or two if i planned on gift knitting these in the future. i also heard on the lime and violet podcast that they found these were not so stretchy and tended to slouch a bit (right?). not so with my socks. perhaps cuz lime substituted yarn? (ps-they are coming to columbus!!! i’m hoping that i’ll be able to catch their live podcast. give me a shout if anyone out there in blogland is planning to go to knitter’s connection)
manny is modeling the 7.75″ of the leg i have finished. she is doing great and says hello to her fans:
