I’m progressing nicely on the Wren cardigan.
Progress so far on the back.
However, the curling edges are still bothering me.
I have two strategies for the fronts; double crochet or a couple of rows of 1/1 rib.
Here’s the test piece I did on the left front:
It stops the edges from curling, but is it in keeping with the overall design? Would four rows of 1/1 rib work better?
I like this idea, but I also like the look of the 1/1 ribbing. Hmmmm…
I’ll either try and block it out (any suggestions for doing so to cotton/silk yarn?) or just live with the curling on the lower edge.
Aesthetically, I want to use a four-round garter stitch cuff because this would “wave” with the stitch pattern. But I know that this isn’t likely to hold the sock up, so I’m pretty certain it’s going to have to be a 2/2 rib. I can’t use elastic in the cuff because my mum’s legs can swell quite a lot and I don’t want her feet dropping off because I made her socks too tight!
Progress on the first sock:
The photo shows that I’m now 1 inch away from starting the gusset increases. The light is atrocious here at the moment because we’re currently experiencing monsoon-like rain storms and funnily enough the camera wanted to use the flash!
Random thought for the day: Do men think that the toilet is self-cleaning?
