When the top of your sock is on a four round repeat and the sole is on a three round repeat... #knittersoflitsy

rather_be_reading what are those gadgets on your fingers? 1mo
julesG @rather_be_reading row counters, I'd guess. 1mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @julesG @rather_be_reading yep, the pink one is counting rows for the pattern on the top of the sock and the green one is counting my increase rows on the sole. 1mo

julesG I admire this. I hate knitting socks. I make one pair per year. It's my perfectionism that makes me hate socks. I want them to be identical and get frustrated. It's stupid, I know, but I can't help it. 1mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @julesG this is my first pair of socks (other than when, as a teenager when I was first starting to knit regularly, I started to make a pair out of some leftover boucle with no understanding of how yarn sizes worked and abandoned the project when it was obvious the "sock" was the size of a leg cast) but I figured if I can make gloves match up well enough it should be fine. It's still less stressful than matching up sleeves too! 1mo
julesG Wristwarmers, sleeves, gloves, mittens, socks - I suffer from second 'sock' syndrome. My first pair of socks was so stiff, wrong yarn on too small DPNs, they could have doubled as shoes. 1mo

I enjoy knitting, but I didn‘t call myself a “Knitter” because I only made things I knit or purled. However, I asked this yarn what pattern it wanted to be, and clearly, so CLEARLY it told me this was the ONLY acceptable pattern. So I had to learn 3 new stitches, because rainbow yarn should get to choose the pattern, and it turns out, I needed to do something different and creative.

And now that I know 5 stitches, I‘m a Knitter.

rather_be_reading gorgeous! 1mo
Oryx Beautiful colours. I was very excited to learn a new knitting stitch this week too. It's the little things 😀 1mo
julesG You were a knitter. You are a knitter. #knittersoflitsy 😉 1mo

BookInMyHands @Oryx It absolutely is the little things. 1mo
BookInMyHands @julesG 😊 Also, I would consider anyone who knits a “Knitter,” I just felt for myself that I had to up my game if I was going to claim it 😆 1mo

Haven't done nearly as much #dayoff reading as expected but I did finally finish the sweater I've been taking forever on (I developed some sort of mental block about it when I got to the sleeves). #knittersoflitsy

Suet624 How beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us. 2mo
Annl Are you on Ravelry? It is a knitting community. 2mo
batsy It's so pretty 💚 2mo
julesG It's lovely. Is it your own design? 2mo
Lindy @julesG I found the pattern online when I was searching for a lace design easy enough to do without too much concentration while travelling. https://www.allfreeknitting.com/Knit-Shawls/Ocean-Waves-Shawl-Red-Heart 2mo
Lindy @Annl I don‘t have a Ravelry account, but I have browsed for patterns there. 2mo
Lindy @julesG Also, I wanted a pattern that would show off the yarn, which had been a gift to me. 2mo
julesG Thank you! BTW, I like Melanie Berg's/Mairlynd's designs. They are easy to follow, have a short pattern repeat and look gorgeous. (Just in case you need another project soon.) 2mo
julesG It's sometimes hard to find a pattern that lets the yarn do the talking/be in the spotlight. (see Mairlynd's patterns, they often are about showing off the yarn rather than complicated lace.) 2mo
Lindy @julesG Thanks for the tip. I had a look at her shawls online and I see what you mean. I picked up a cone of lace weight alpaca/linen blend when I was in Tokyo and now am looking for a shawl pattern. But first I need to get back to the qiviuk/cashmere undervest that‘s in progress. 2mo
julesG Very organised! Knitting projects, to me, are like books, the more I start the merrier. 😵😵😵 2mo
Lindy @julesG I‘m doing my very best now to be disciplined about projects… which is not how I was in the past. I enjoy starting projects so much more than finishing them. 2mo

Watching HP&tPoA and working on sock two of this pair (my first ever for myself - I never really make anything for me!). During the movie I did all the cable section, 42 rounds. 2-3 more movies until this sock is finished!

EclecticBookLover That looks awesome! I live the colors too! 3mo
mreads Wow nice 👍❤ 3mo
BibliOphelia Remember to make some for Dobby too! 3mo
ravenlee Thanks @mreads and @EclecticBookLover - the yarn color is called Kindling, which I just love. @BibliOphelia I always think of Hermione when I‘m making hats, and her crusade for the house elves. 3mo

Second installment of the series.

Matthew and India are looking for a missing apprentice. They learn more about magic. Since the chemistry between the two of them is strong, India worries about Matt very often, which occasionally made me roll my eyes.

Latest shawl project. #audioknitting
