Last Saturday, Philipp was kind enough to do a bit of a photo session with me to show off everything I had finished by that time (right now, there is one more pair of socks, my sister’s hat and three(!!) small hats, but I’ll have to take pictures in decent light). But there is a lot to see nonetheless … Shall we?
This is me sitting on the edge of the sofa, trying not to knock it over (leverage effect, brought to you by …). More photos of the Drop City socks are on my project page. I love how they turned out: I knit them from the toe up, but decreased the cuff every 5 rounds until I had 88 stitches on the needles; then I bound off using the Surprisingly Stretchy Cast Off.
Also, the Simply Simple Socks were ready to being photographed as a pair:
I haven’t worn them yet, but they look lovely and I’m so happy to have yet another warm pair of socks for the winter!
Also, there was a shawl that I started in January but finished in May: It’s the Larch Shawl, very beautiful and warm and lovely (and just a tiny bit too small):
The reason for the long pause was a mistake I made and that took me 1446(!) stitches(!!) to tink back(!!!), so I needed to be REALLY calm when I did this. But I am happy that I got it right in the end, and it has already been worn a couple of times.
The best thing about the pictures above? Everything’s for meeeeeee ….
