With abject apologies to Dr. Seuss . . .
Will you knit them in a box?
Do you knit sox tough as rocks?
Can you knit sly as a fox?
Or do you suffer knitting pox?
Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post. The Random Number Generator has spoken, and Lynda Hitt is hereby proclaimed the winner of my Toe-Up Socks in a Box! Lynda, I’ve emailed you.
In other news, the formerly unnamed sideways shawl, now known as the Transverse Shawlette (thank-you Sharon for the naming idea!) is now a fait accompli.
Here it is pre-blocking, measuring 40″ across the top edge and 20″ down the center back.
And after blocking it has grown to 64″ across the top edge and 26″ down the center back.
This was knit from one skein of Madeline Tosh Pashmina (using the Posy colorway) on U.S. size 7 (4.5mm) needles. Pattern coming soon!
In other news, Lucy may have had a bit too much fun this weekend . . .
