While I was knitting along on my Austermann sock at SnB Tuesday night, I thought that something didn’t look right about the color pattern. When I got home, I compared it to the finished sock.
The color repeat of the blue-gray-ish color is not as long as it was for the first sock. It’s only about half as long. Which means, of course, that after all my careful planning, the sock stripes will not match. Poop. I am contemplating the idea of ripping out the green part and splicing in some extra yarn for a few rows, so that the green will start in the right spot – then hopefully it will match for the rest of the sock, or at least through the heel.
In other WIP news, Forest Canopy is moving along quickly. Did I mention that I’m doing the “Knitting With Nora” KAL?
And then there’s my sadly neglected Lacy Gloves. I really want these to be done, but I’m not much in the mood for gloves right now – I want to think about Spring! But also, I’m to the thumb gusset and I have to think about whether to change it for the second glove. It was ridiculously oversized for the first one, and I’m trying to decide whether to adjust it before I finish the gusset, or just make the second one the same as the first.
