November greys are sure to follow Halloween. I'm knitting another pair of socks, with some gray in them. The colored yarn was a gift from Channon, and I've a good amount left from the beret I have already knitted up in it.
The cuff, the heels and the toes will be Koigu grey.
Let's be really honest here. This cast on, when completed will make 6 finished pairs of socks this year . I Have two other partial pairs, but they don't count yet. That goal of 13 in 2012 is not looking good. Meh. I don' t think I mind. .....
The other two pair IF finished bring me to 8.
My last pair of socks, the beige and brown stripe child's socks, had a little problem. The second sock is near done but I fudged the toe finish. I am going to have to spend some time reworking the toe.
Why do I get antsy at the end? My hands nearly shake when there are only a few little stitches left on the needles. I gave up on Kitchener long ago. The three needle bind off finds a way to laugh at me almost every time....
The only toe for me seems to be the round toe.
I googled a Kitchener tutorial that may save me yet. Maybe if I have a nice glass of Chardonnay before I try to Kitchener, I'll be successful. Any tips for me?
