In which we pull a “now you see it, now you don’t” trick.
See this? It’s the back of the Central Park Hoodie which I knitted on the drive down to Las Vegas this weekend (I wasn’t the one driving, of course).
It will soon be history. Yes, I finished the entire back and got through the ribbing on the left front before realizing that I was knitting the wrong size – one size too small. I decided to ignore the back and just let it fester while I worked on the fronts. (I know it was silly to hope that it would somehow magically expand if I just stuffed it into my knitting bag for a day or two, but it didn’t keep me from trying.) But now I’m close to finishing the second front piece, so I guess I’ll be ripping.
I’m planning to make some plain stockinette socks with a ribbed cuff. This is the neat Austermann Step yarn, with Aloe Vera and Jojoba oil in it. I got it from a contest Carrie had ages ago. Because it’s self-striping, I figured I’d just do the socks in stockinette to show it off better. I haven’t ever done socks without a stitch pattern before, so it will be interesting to see how they fit.
