I love the heel on this sock. It looks like a star pattern.
So, I jumped on the bandwagen and started another pair of socks on two needles. This time I am knitting a basic stockinette sock using Sereknity yarn in the color vineyard. It's a light sportweight yarn and I love the feel of it. I am using size 2 needles. I ran into a problem casting this sock on the needles. I was getting a gap at the one side of the join. After casting on three times and ripping out the stitches, I cast onto double points, knit two rows and transferred the stitches to the circulars. How is that for determination?
I also worked on dishcloths last week. I finished the October KAL for my dishcloth group. The pattern is Frankenstein's Monster Cloth by brileyknits. I used size 7 needles with Peaches and Creme yarn in olive green. I enjoyed knitting this cloth and the size was smaller than other cloths that I have made before.
I also completed the dishcloth from Rachel's Knitting Group. The pattern is called Zig with a bit of Zag by Noreen Hunter Talbot. I used size 6 needles with Sugar and Cream yarn in cornflower blue. This pattern was really fun to knit. The size was much larger than any other that I have knit before.
My knitting class started another dishcloth for the month of October. It's the Starfish washcloth pattern. I am using size 7 needles with Sugar and Cream pinky stripes. I am enjoying the short rows on this dishcloth.
Last, but not least, I started on a prayer shawl. I'm not sure who I am going to give this to, but I have wanted to knit one for awhile. It's the standard pattern for a prayer shawl from the Prayer Shawl Ministry (knit 3, purl 3). I am using Lion Brand Homespun yarn in candy apple red with size 11 needles.
Off to knit some more!
