Knot Watt Ewe Think

Knitting, Spinning, Movies, the InterWebs, and whatever else I turn my mind to…. but mostly knitting.

A peek

Posted by Miss Knotty on November 30, 2007

Progress on my Seraphim!

Feathery Bits Detail

Idn’t it purty?

Yarn is Sock Garden by Knitpicks in Zinnia. Knitted on Sz 7 Addi Turbos.  I’m about 65% done, I think.  I have the rest of Chart b, then charts C & D and the Edging, then I’m done. But here’s the trick – each right-side row increases by 4 stitches.  It seems paltry, but consider, that each 4 stitch increase adds to the already MANY 4-stitch increases that have come before it, thus making for a very lengthy purl row. VERY lengthy.  I love the knit rows, they always seem to go faster than the purls.  Maybe it’s because there’s something INTERESTING going on, so I want to see what the next row holds! So. Love the project, love the look, love the yarn, just dragging on the purl rows.

It’s okay though.  I have mini projects that I’m working on too, when I can’t work on Seraphim – a dishcloth here, a sock heel there (I’m on the heel of my lacy-Jaywalker socks! :) Progress, progress everywhere and not a drop to drink!

In any case, things are getting okay again.  I’ve been dealing with some not-fun health and energy problems (Honey, we don’t have ‘issues’ here.)  but I’m hopeful that with a new medicine cocktail, I’ll actually be kind of better.  I’m for that.

‘night, all!

    Maybe you should take a stab at “purling backwards.” I’ve been using it a lot lately and it takes a bit of practice to get going, but you don’t have to turn your work and you get to look at the pretty right side the whole time you’re “purling”…
