The socks above look great on the sock board, but I am not sure that either one is going to be wide enough, which is strange. I ripped out the one that was looking seriously small and did another one with a regular (non knitpicks) 2.25 needle, which is my old stand by. As I was knitting, Ash says.."Gee Mom, that looks so narrow, I doubt it would fit me." Hmmmm.......the more I thought about it the more I am worried she could be right, especially with the one on the knitpics, although they are knitting up at the same length gauge, it still seems narrower.
So.......they have been put on the back burner for just a little bit so that I can contemplate what to do. Do I rip them both out and do them one at a time on 2.50's or do I finish the larger one on the 2.25 and hope for the best.
...then there is Twisted Vines. I love working on this sweater. The yarn is so soft and user friendly. The problem? While it looks like a simple knit, it is a bit deceiving. On the front panels, you have 4 different things going on at the same time to keep track of and none of them coincide with each other. Not really a problem, but I had set TV aside to finish a few things and forgot to leave a note as to where I left off. Normally I am very good about that, but not this time and I can't for the life of me figure out where I am, so I will have to rip back a few rows to get my bearings again......so she has been resting as well.
The one thing that had been giving me fits when I started ironically has been the one knit that has been moving along without a hitch now. I finally found a good rhythm with the Etheral Fitchu. Go figure.. She kind of looks like a scary blob though, doesn't she...LOL
So....I think that I am going to try and recollect my focus and work on only one knit project for a little bit to see if it helps me move in the right direction again. Although, I have to admit, the sewing machine has been calling, so perhaps a little knitting and just a little sewing....and maybe...just a teeny bit of rug hooking...and........
You see, I just can not keep myself out of that rabbit hole! :)
