I started on Knitty‘s Breeze some time ago with Knit Picks‘ Risata. The pattern is simple enough (minus a few mistakes on my end due to exciting Law & Order: SVU episodes) and I’m almost done with one sock (left with grafting the toes). However, when I tried on the sock, it’s a little too snug for me. So now I’m wondering if Risata will stretch or shrink during wash. That’ll determine if I should frog the sock and make it bigger. I don’t want to make it bigger and then have it stretch out to epic proportions after the wash. I know, I know, do a swatch right?
I still suck at picking up stitches for the gusset. Check out the hole! Blech! If I don’t re-knit this thing, I’ll have to patch up the holes. Yes, holes. There’s one on each side.
Also, I love, LOVE the colour of the yarn.
One of my favourite things to receive in the mail is post cards. A lovely lady from Minnesota has sent me one for the Random Acts of Kindness going on at Crochetville. Thank you, FGM. :)
