Okay, I’ve gotten several email questions about whether I would consider hosting an Ingeborg Knit-Along.
Anyone wanna play?
Ingeborg is not next in the line-up for me. That’s Flora. But I’ll make Ingeborg the project after Flora, if anyone’s interested in knitting along with me.
Just for grins, I made a button.
I’m thinking a start date sometime the first two weeks of May? Opinions, anyone? Ingeborg, in three colorways, is available in Dale Book 126.
A Sock Question
What cast off do you use for your toe-up socks? I’ve tried the EZ sewn cast off and it’s not quite what I’m looking for. Have you ever seen instructions for a tubular cast off in k2 p2 ribbing?
I’ve used the sewn cast off. But what I do more often is increase my number of stitches, by either 4 or 8, as I start the ribbing. Then I cast off lossely in whatever rib pattern I’ve used.
I’ve not tried a tubular cast-off in rib, but Flor has instructions for it here.
Speaking of Socks . . .
Here’s L-B’s sock:
Here’s my sock:
I haven’t worked on mine since lunchtime Friday. I was looking forward to knitting on the train going home Friday, but started feeling icky Friday afternoon. Sinus congestion, et cetera.
So icky did I feel that I did no knitting at all on Friday evening. But I did finish the body of Frida on Saturday:
And got some done on one sleeve over the weekend:
But my knitting time was curtailed because I spent Saturday afternoon buying this:
That’s a 2004 Honda Civic EX Coupe.
In case anyone wants to know, I bought her at Bill Page Honda in Falls Church, VA, and had a very pleasant car buying experience. And got a very good price. I recommend them.
Betsy finished HoJo! It’s wonderful! Go see!
It’s Monday! Get down to business!
