Socks are your true friends

Socks are forever.

I love knitting socks.

Especially two socks together. But a sock at a time is okay too. As long as you cast on the second sock right away. Always have a sock-in-progress with you and you will never be bored. I even like kitchnering.

I am leaving for Thailand Saturday. It's a 24-hour flight. I never sleep on a plane. Do you think I can finish a sock? Maybe a pair if I knit two at a time? We shall see.

Sweater, on the other hand, can either be your friend or enemy.

This is the latest craze on Ravelry.

February lady sweater. Based on Elizabeth Zimmerman's baby sweater by the same name in the Knitter's Almanac. Free pattern is here.

Seems like everybody is knitting it, so I joined the crowd and cast on with some modifications.

I knitted the bodice in stockinette instead of garter. I also did yarnover increase instead of M1 as the pattern says. The yarn is Dream in Color Classy in Nightwatch. From stash. (Yeah!!) Lovely hand.

Unfortunately it needs to be frogged back a few inches. I did the eyelet increase too soon. The eyelet row should be just a couple of row above the beginning of the lace pattern. Off to the frog pond I go.

I told you. Socks are good.
