And here’s the progress I’ve made (colour is more accurate in this photo than last week’s)
Closer shot of the number of rows I’ve done, as indicated by the blue stitch marker:
I think 7 days is all I can manage on this (it takes a great deal of concentration and I’m increasing 6 sts every other row so it’s only going to get harder!), so I’ve switched to another long-languishing UFO.
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!
