Izzy’s ready for some sock talk!
I’m currently working on two pairs of socks — one in Regia Ringel, one in Regia Stretch, both sock weight yarns. Here’s a photo of the two of them:
The Regia Stretch is on the left, the regular Regia on the right. This is the first time I’ve used the Regia Stretch.
So how do they differ?
I’m knitting both using US size 0 (2mm) needles and the Stretch is a little finer — I’m getting almost 9 stitches to the inch. On the same needles with the regular Regia it’s closer to 8 stitches to the inch. The Stretch has a silkier feeling to it, rather than the more wooly feel of the regular Regia. It’s not unpleasant — as a matter of fact, I rather like it. It’ll work up into a slightly thinner sock.
And of course stretchier.
That’s about it for exciting knitting news. Busy busy day at work yesterday and more than likely another busy one today.
Thanks for all the nice things y’all said about Valtos. Glad you like it!
Oh, one more thing. I have been told by my source that the Fudgie the Whale and the Santa Claus ice cream cake are one and the same. I’m told that they turn the tail up on top to make a hat and simply decorate it differently.
Does anyone else feel as used as I do?
