Firstly, thank you for the lovely comments on my Broadripple socks (and the shoes!). I’m not a fast sock knitter but each one really did take me about a week to knit so I’d highly recommend the pattern. With holes or without!
My main knitting focus right now is a knit-a-long. I know, I know; I don’t have a great track record with any kind of -a-long but I couldn’t resist this one!
It’s the Advent Calendar KAL (or Adventskalenderschal) by Kristin Benecken. I’m already half a day/a day/a year behind (delete as appropriate depend on when you read this!) but I hope if I get some simple lace patterns I can catch up!
My favourite day so far is Day 4 – I just love that pattern even though it required a lot of concentration.
The yarn I’m using is the same I made my Swan Lake Stole in (back in the mists of 20??). I’m holding it double (and using 3 mm needles) to make the fabric a little more substantial and it’s working up as a heavy lace/light fingering-weight. The yarn is still oiled, even after all these years, so it will bloom and soften when I wash it in a metric tonne of soap!
