Some progress was made on my Pretty Basic shawl but not as much as I wanted. My concentration is a little suspect because the design doesn't quite look like I think it should, but I'm going forward anyway. When it's worn, no one will see one or two little blips, I hope. I must stay focused from here on out.
Most of my knitting time was spent ripping out my Hermione's everyday socks. They were knitting up too big with the suggested needles. I started over 3 more times with smaller needles each time, and still could not get the 9 sts/inch that the pattern recommended. The yarn says fingering, but it must be thicker than the normal sock yarn. Not sure what I'm going to do now. I really love this yarn, but I hate wasting anymore time guessing what size needles or how many stitches I should decrease to get the proper fit. Anyone else have this problem with sock yarn or their sock patterns?
Linking up with Patchwork Times. Have a look there so see more knitty projects.
