not much progress has been made on my hedgerow socks because i ended up ripping them out and restarting with smaller needles. though i got gauge (in stockinette) with 2.25mm, i tend to forget that i get looser when knitting in knit/purl patterns or lace .... the fabric did not have enough boing for my taste, so i am knitting again on 2mm needles now.
and it's slooooowwwwww ! and i'm already bored with the pattern ! whaaaa ! its only redeeming value is that it's pretty and i like the yarn ... and they're gonna be for me.
on the other hand, in protest to wee tiny stitches in a knit/purl pattern with 2mm needles, i started a truly mindless sock (stockinette) ... also on 2mm needles (oops).
i almost completely knitted the leg yesterday (read: didn't have enough brain cells to work on the cabled yoke pullover) and it's totally mindless just knit knit knit round and round !
i don't know when i knitted the first sock. apparently, i didn't keep any notes on it, and ended up having to swatch all over again.
