Mittens vs Socks
Moth Heaven has a post up extolling the visibility of Mittens one line states that socks are invisible to muggles. Well she has a point, but then again, if one knits socks in public, say, oh I don't know, while substitute teaching, the little darlings, ask about them and start asking to see the socks one is wearing today. (and now you know why I have 32 pair of socks).
These are the newest pair, based on the Padded Footlets by Mary Snyder, In Favorite Socks.
Changes: toe- up. No padding in the foot, usual height socks, afterthought heel. But otherwise just like the pattern...Honest!
Well really, I just stole the chart and plugged it into my usual sock, upside down.
I also have Lizards, well actually 1 lizard, (discounting all of the pictures of Lizards in the pattern) and by this evening the Lizard will be a Lizard and not a dragon because it will be doing that tongue thing. (Mulan: the dragon says, "I am a dragon not a Lizard, I don't do that tongue thing") maybe you have to live with movie buffs...
Anyway, what have I been doing? Edging, border, what ever you call the thing on the bottom, and sleeves, and neck of a sweater when it is not ribbing. The pattern has corrugated rib, but it is a sweater for a child, a boy child! And if it is not easy to get into it will not be worn, and corrugated rib is not stretchy, but garter stitch is and if you do the border/bindoff as 18 miles of sideways garter stitch done 2 row of this color and 2 rows of that color, it sorta looks like corrugated rib, but is stretchy. The downside: boring!
Any way what do you think?
More pictures once the eyes are on and the tongue and stripe down the back are finished.
