It got light enough this past weekend for me to take a half-decent photo of my in-progress 14 Karat sock.
Instead of knitting top-down, I did my usual short row toe (62 stitches) then increased to 70 stitches for the charted part. I feel a bit bad but I decided not to do the clever patterning to the to, although I am sure this would be possible, especially with a figure-8 type cast on.
I love this yarn – it’s Artist’s Palette Smoothie Sock. The photo really isn’t true to the colour at all. It’s more like a dark blue-green with flashes of green and blue.
It’s knitting up quickly and the the pattern is surprisingly intuitive. I haven’t looked at the chart much lately.
Still working on Mum’s Christmas cardigan, and I’ve been getting back in to crochet a bit and planning a vest design with some artesano alpaca I have in stash.
