Another on bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust.
Hey, I'm gonna get you too,
Another one bites the dust!- Queen 'Another One Bites the Dust'
It's always a nice feeling to finish a project. The yarn slides off the needles and they are once again free for some other project. There is always a point in the pattern that I feel like i'll never reach the end, but it eventually happens. Ah, how joyous!
Project: Two-Tone Socks
Pattern: I didn't use a specific pattern, just used what I knew worked for socks in that past.
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Tonal Sock Yarn. I used the colors Gypsy and Canopy. This yarn is nice and soft and the skeins are 100g for a decent price. However, towards the end the yarn was splitting a lot and I found some "soft spots" in the color.
Details: CO: 64 stitches. I decreased this down to 60 half way through the cuff. Heel was an afterthought short-row (to get the opposite color) and the toe was also short-row and for them I used this pattern. I started this project the day after Christmas and finished 1/20. Not bad for me, as I get distracted a lot and play way too many video games on my day off. :)
I've already started my next project: Ringwood Gloves. After knitting socks on size 2 needles making dk weight gloves with size 6 needles is so much quicker. I can hardly believe it!
I have to wait to borrow some size 6 dpns to finish the fingers so I'm starting the other hand already. These should be done in a few days, which will be nice for the cold weather.
I'm also in love with this color. Aah so pretty.
