I’ve finally begun my gift knitting for this year. The first project I wanted to tackle was Kayla’s Lace Cardigan, and I spent most of last week using my free time to translate the pattern. I’ve sent it off to a Swedish knitting group member who promised to verify my translation, and am just waiting for her to get back to me before I can start knitting.
In the meantime I have started my father-in-law’s Christmas socks. Plain old boring stockinette stitch socks, heel flap and gussets, nothing fancy, in solid brown. Do they keep my attention, or what? I’m just kidding, I actually like the simplicity of them and have been fantasizing about having the time to knit another pair of socks for myself.
This photo was taken earlier in the week. I’ve since worked through past the gusset and have decreased to have my original stitch count on the needles. On to the foot!
