Finished a set of snowmen pillows today for my SIL. :fdance:
I am working on my first pair of socks now. This is my first attempt, after 40 years of knitting, using double point needles. URGHere is my project for Jan! It is WRAPPED!!!!! woo hoo! Color is bad, the socks are really shades of pink and the round dove at the top is the top of the box to wrap the socks in....
I thought about trying tube socks first, but my knitting group came up with a sock knit along so I just went with itMary - I make tube socks, no heel, easy to fit and they last longer. Good luck with your socks!
Because most of the time I knit my own designs, I learned the hard way that when I have to do two of something, like sleeves, to work on them at the same time or keep specific records of what I did. In the long run, its easier to do two at the same time.Mary, that's a great idea to work on both socks at the same time on different sets of needles!! Brilliant in fact!!
When you get to the last stitch on the needle, instead of going on to the next needle, knit one from the next needle, give it a gentle tug, then start the next needle. I'm sure this is as clear as mud. But you're moving a stitch over each time and that will prevent those ribs.So far so good using the dpn's . I do have an issue I need to work on when I join the round, one side sits just a tad higher than the other so its not perfect, but that may just come with practice. I'm knitting both socks at the same time on different sets of needles and the second is definately much better than the first. : )
