Few patterns harness my knitting mojo and make me want to make it more than once. Monkey Socks, Leyburn socks, the Danish Ear Flap Cap are the ones that spring to mind. And now - Hey, Teach! Joins the list. Last year I jumped on the bandwagon & knit Hey, Teach only to underestimate my size & the finished project was too small. So - I ordered the same yarn & set out to knit it again - a size larger - for me. And finally - I have achieved my quest.
Pattern: Hey, Teach! (knitty - Summer 2008)
Yarn: Knit Picks Shine, Worsted
Needles: KPO US 8
Mods: Nothing except the three-needle bind-off.
Lots of finishing around here. Another project is on its way to FO status. I think that gives me the green light to cast on a new project.
This is some Malabrigo sock yarn, remnants from the Jeanne Shawl that I'm going to use for the 2009 Mystery Sock KAL designed by Kirsten Kapur of Through The Loops. Come along & Join us!
