I turned the heel on my rainbow sock. I love these socks. Rainbows make me smile. I used a simple short row heel - rainbow of course. I am hoping the self-striping will line-up so that the toe will be rainbow as well. I could cut the yarn and force it, but I am too lazy to go to that much effort.
This is my Cecily jacket with 674 stitches on the needles (not a typo). That is a lot of stitches. I am on the lace border now. I have had to move the project to a 40inch circular needle and it takes me almost an hour to knit one row (and drink a glass of wine). I have been trying it on as I go, and so far so good.
Also I finished a sock sample.
This is a cuff down sock that uses a simple drop stitch design on the front and ribbing on the back. It is very stretchy. I made the sample in my own size (I make all sample my size) and it is too big. I have graded the pattern for an extra size because I think most knitters will have to knit down a size. It is with the tech editor now and I hope to start testing later this week.
I hope you have had a great knitting week. I would love to hear about and see what you have been working on.
