Like Riding a Bike
Knitting is sort of like riding a bike. Well, sort of.
Remember these projects? They're finally finished! Yes, it took me almost 1 year to complete.
I was getting the knitting itch again but first wanted to finish certain things I already had on my needles (to make room for more...)
Funny how you can pick up a project and either completely forget where you left off or pick up just where you left off. Do you notice anything different about the gloves above? The opening for the thumbs - one is vertical and one is horizontal. Oops.
But once they're on, you don't notice the mistakes. And heh, it goes with the name of the knit pattern: mistake rib! They're from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
And my socks, which will always remind me of the Grateful Dead, are from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. Picot Edged socks with a few minor variations on how to pick up stitches in a more pretty fashion.
Now... onto some more last minute knitted projects for Christmas!
