Knitting a hat as preparation for a larger garment.
I chose to knit an iPod sock as preparation for a me-sized sock!
My Spidey-sense told me that I would get the prescribed tension over 2.25 mm needles, but just to check I switched to 2 mm needles part way up. I was right!
Dead-on with the larger needles (9.5 stitches per inch) but too tight with the smaller (a shade over 10 spi).
I have to confess to being a little nervous about using this yarn. The reason? The person, the very person, who dyed the yarn, reads my blog. Hi Anne! I’m grateful that the sock designer (Mim) doesn’t, so at least I only have to perform with the yarn! 😀
I cast on for the toe (toe-up sock, see?)
I couldn’t lay my hands on any waste yarn so I used dental floss. Hmmmm … minty!
Now, I wonder what else floss can be used for?
Some boring admin stuff – I’ve updated the list of blogs I read to include some recently-discovered ones, change the URLs of some people who have migrated and to organise them by category. I’m also going to update/I’ve also updated* the podcast list, again adding/changing/re-organising them.
*delete as appropriate depending on whether I’ve got around to it yet!
