Because the Midnight Lace Stole is large enough now to be a bit unwieldy, I started a sock for the commute.
This is the lovely Kid Hollow Farm sock yarn I bought over the weekend, in the “Foggy Mountain” colorway. I’m doing a very simple sock because it doesn’t need a pattern to compete with the colorway. It’s just stockinette with a seed stitch placed at equal intervals to add a little interest. I love how this yarn is working up. I’m using my usual 2mm (U.S. size 0) needle and getting a nice firm fabric at 8st/inch. I have a feeling this sock will wear very well.
I am at the point on the Midnight Lace Stole where I am doing short rows at the end of the first side.
The short rows give the bottom edge a slant — very cool, no? After the short-rowing is done, I’ll knit the edging on, and that will be fun because there are more beads involved.
The Thirteenth Tale
I finished reading The Thirteenth Tale last week before going away for the weekend. I found it quite entertaining and even managed to guess part of the last plot twist.
Who’d like to read it next?
