skew? SKEW you! LOL!


... we are into another month, and another challenge ... unusual construction. this is the beginning of skew. it's been on knitty for awhile, and it was "love at first sight", but ... it's one of those patterns for which fit might be "tricky". so far, i'm knitting as written, and the fit is good. but, i've "paused" (i do that when i get to part/transition, where i must make a decision). i think i've now knitted enough foot to begin the ankle section. i just need a good block of time to think it over and proceed. so, that won't be 'til the weekend.

this yarn is a MY craft store favorite, it's lion brand's sock ease. SKEW looks great in yarns that stripe ... it accentuates the bias fabric. i have A LOT of self-striping yarns in stash, but had a hard time finding the perfect one. the colorway is called rock candy.
