Walking the ‘Walk

Our drive out to Michigan provided me with some much-needed uninterrupted knitting time. After about 13 hours in the car, I am now 3/4 of the way through my lace scarf (nevermind that it was supposed to be a Christmas gift!), and 80% finished with the first Jaywalker.  Thankfully I don’t get carsick while knitting in motion…

I frogged the sock back to the ribbing after my last post and reworked the pattern. It was my own error in counting that caused the traveling stitches. Much better! It’s amazing how fudging something up, studying it a little, and reworking it can make your end product so much better. It’s not only more beautiful to look at now, but I feel a little more confident in my ability to read my own knitting and problem solve. I am noticing now that the fabric does not stretch as much as I thought it would, so it may be a little tight. Since I’m past the heel at this point, I don’t think I’ll be frogging it, but if I were to make another pair I would either make the larger size or modify it myself.

Christmas went well, and I received a couple of useful knitting gifts.  I will post more about those later when I can add some photos.  Until then, keep merry and bright!
