As you may have read in previous posts, I have conducted a colorwork knitting experiment. The experiment has not concluded. And here are the results.
For whatever reason, knitting socks that were comfy for me have eluded me all these years. Too long, too short, too loose, too tight, too bumpy on the soles of my feet (I am not a princess with much but with my feet I am!), I have experienced them all. I cannot tell you how many single socks I have knit that don't have a partner or have been frogged.
Sometimes in the warmer weather, I just need a little something to cover my shoulders, especially when I am in an air conditioned space. I decided to remedy that this year with a little linen capelet. It is light & drapey, perfect for what I am looking for.
During my many, many years of knitting, I have come across some tips and tricks that I thought might be helpful to you. This first tip is about the tension on a colorwork project. This has helped me immensely and saved me hours of ripping back and reknitting. I hope it enriches your knitting journey!
It gave people a sense of accomplishment by completing a project that had a purpose and repurposed a discarded piece of clothing!
Maybe I will revisit this idea but not with novelty yarn, maybe colorwork!!!!
