socks for me!!

10 07 2007

i started a pair for me!! i had wound this into a ball in case i finished my broad spiral rib socks on the fourth of july. i didn’t start them until the next day, since darkness fell quickly.

at first, my intention was to employ the new sock construction techniques that i learned in cat’s class from knitter’s connection. alas, i was too lazy to pull out my notes to start a pair. hm. now that i’m writing this i’m half tempted to rip ’em out. what do you think?

started: july 5, 2007
needles: 2, #1 addi turbo circs
notes: toe-up, increased to 60 stitches

compared to socks that rock, this yarn is more loosely spun and less “squishy”. it knits up to a very soft fabric that i’m looking forward to wearing on my feet! i think it is very similar to the yarntini yarn that i got a while back.

now the question is, do i start another pair for new sock construction, or do i rip back? i guess i’ll work on my blanket until i figure it out.

oooo!  fess up….who’s going to the harry potter premiere tonight!  i am.  can you say IMAX?!?

those socks are great! i’d say keep going and start a new pair with the other construction….

wow I love that color, I think they look great. What about starting a new pair to use the techniques you learned? Or do you want to use this yarn?

Whether you rip or continue will be dictated by your inner knitter. You’ll know 🙂 I haven’t gotten on the HP train (I know!) But lots of my friends have seen the iMAX version and plan to continue to do so! Enjoy!

Leave them alone! They are pretty. I’m with Bobbi, make your next pair with your new technique. Unless of course you’re too distracted by thinking about it and then rip away! Haven’t seen the new HP yet, but can’t wait! I think we’re all a little more interested in book 7, but will definitely find time for the movie.

How did you like the movie? I’m hearing good things about and plan to see it soon. Then I can reread #6 before #7 arrives on my doorstep!
