Washed my needle

See how clean it is?
Yes, I do see that my keyboard could use what my Aunt June calls the once over.

This is what I decided to do with the too small sock. I know it looks like some of my overworked knitting where I frog and reknit all over the place, but it's actually a pattern. I thought I ought to make one from the Six Sox Knit Along since I joined it more than 6 months ago. The pattern is called The Best of Both Worlds, or BOBW. I haven't read the whole pattern, but so far it seems like it's just starting in the middle exactly as I've thought about doing it myself. You can see the reddish yarn of the provisional cast on. I was hoping it would be more exciting, but I'm not dissatisfied. I cast on 72 instead of 64, decreased down to 68 using the gusset, and I worked a pattern on the part of the cast on rows that would become the instep. Here's a link to the Six Sox Knit Along. N You have to join in order to access the patterns. A new pattern is put out every other month. Members can post about patterns as much as they like, but must post only two pictures for each design, one of the sock(s) in progress and one of the completed socks. Some of the designs are fairly plain or fairly odd, but a lot of them are really clever or pretty. You can see most or all of them on Ravelry. N

I'm in awe. I can't get my mind around this idea of starting in the middle. But it sounds like you know what you mean!

Nice heel warmer. We had snow this morning too. I can't relate to our spring either too tricky. Never trust spring.

I also joined, quite some time ago, actually... maybe I need to actually knit along. Thanks for the reminder! I'll have to poke in again.

*stares in awe*

I still can't muster up the courage to try a toe-up let alone start in the middle!
