I have one FO and one almost FO.
Pattern: I used Rainbow Maze for the hat and an improvised recipe for the mittens.
Yarns: BMFA Socks That Rock Mediumweight in Handsome Man and Frabjous Fibers Mad Hatter in Tulgey Wood.
Comments: I made this cute little set for a friend's grand baby. The next time I make the hat, I will use a solid yarn with more contrast to the multi. I did like how the hat came out though.
The almost FO is my Lost Diadem Socks. I wanted to have them finished today for the March entries to several KALs around the net. The pattern is fancy schmancy and I lost a whole week in the month while I was off living my dash; so, I'm not devastated. There's another reason I'm not finished.
Firstly and not related to the reason, I chose not to do the lace pattern on the back of the leg. Instead, I continued the rib pattern of the cuff.
Do you notice anything? Look at the right side of the sock on the right. Last night, I discovered that I had set up the rib pattern wrong on the back of that sock.
And I only noticed it when I had knitted the entire leg!
I put them away and went to bed. I grappled with deciding whether or not it's noticeable enough to fix them. Finally, I figured it would bother me for the rest of the life of the socks if I didn't repair them.
I started where I needed to put a garter column, thinking that it would be the one that would take the most time. If it ended up taking way too long, I was going to go back to stockinette and just deal with the socks being less than perfect.
Before I knew it (it wasn't all that quick, but hey) I was working on the final column.
An hour and four redone columns of 90 or so rows later, I had socks whose backs matched.
Not too bad, huh?
I think I'm going to have a liedown now.
