A Weekend of Knitting



I managed to get more knitting done this weekend than I anticipated. I finished clue 3 of the Mystery Stole 2, both sides. The pattern is perfect. You can watch TV while you're knitting because even though it isn't mindless knitting it isn't as difficult as some of the Niebling patterns I have done.


When I finished knitting clue 3 I went back to the Pomatomus sock. A friend of mine suggested that I knit the pattern for the cuff only and do st st for the foot. I did that and now I am not sure if I like the way it looks. I just finished the gussett and it looks like the pick up after the heel flap is done is puckering. I believe the pucker might be fixable when I block the socks but I am not sure. I will put it aside for tonight and tomorrow I'll decide if I want to continue or rip it out.

    Your Mystery Stole is gorgeous! It is a very similar color to mine in Zephyr.

    I didn't like the gusset on the pomatomus either, even with the pattern worked throughout the foot. I have decided not to make the second sock. I'm going to rip out my one finished sock and use the yarn for a plain sock.

    I'm sorry you don't like it with just the cuff in pattern. How did you knit the heel...as the pattern suggests or did you make a slip-stitch heel flap? I didn't like heel flap in the pattern.
