I totally meant to post on Monday for Masters Monday, but I forgot to. I do have some Master Knitter stuff to show you this week, so I’ll show you today instead!
Here’s my Swatch #7 pre- and post-seaming (I had shown you the pre-seaming shot last week, if you recall) –
I love the magic of seaming just about as much as I love the magic of blocking. There’s no trace of the stair steps from the original unseamed swatches – and that is accomplished by choosing your seam stitches very carefully! 🙂
Here’s Swatch #8 blocking:
This one is short rows with a three needle bind off seam. Not sure if I’m happy with the tension around the short rows, but I’ll leave it for now and see what the committee members have to say about it – maybe I’m being overly critical.
Moving on to my ‘fun’ knitting – here are my socks as of today:
I’m not happy with the ribbing on the toe of the first one, so I think once I finish the second one I’ll rip the toe out on the first one and redo it. I hope to have the second sock done in a day or two – I only have one and a half more repeats of the instep cable to go before I can start the toe! These are for Camp Loopy project #2, so I need to finish them by the 15th at the very latest – but I should have them done way before then.
I’ll fill you in on my project selection and yarn for Camp Loopy project #3 once I get the yarn in the mail, which should be in just few days.
