Living the Knit Life


WIP Wednesday

I have managed to knit myself into a wrist brace.  Again.  I am taking a couple of days off and taking care of myself.  I am wearing my brace, taking anti-inflammatories and keeping sane busy with non-knitting, knitting like cruising Ravelry, catching up on knitting blogs,  tidying up the stash...
I cast-on a new design over the weekend.  I really like the way it is knitting up.  If my wrist cooperates, I am hoping to have it ready for testing by the end of the week.  If you are a tester and you are on Ravelry (the test will be conducted in a Ravelry thread) and you want to test this sock, contact me with your Ravelry name and I will earburn you when it is ready to test. 
It is knit top-down and uses slipped stitches and cables to form the pattern.  The colourwork is done using mosaic knitting so you only ever work with one colour at a time (no floats and no carrying yarn) - this is my favourite type of colourwork.  This pattern has a short row heel and a wedge toe that is grafted using Kitchener stitch.  It is graded for 3 circumferences. 
I finished my first Burberry sock and have cast on the second.  I love this sock.  I cannot wait to wear them.  They are my new favourite socks. 
My 'Pattern of the Month' is Solar Vortex.  It is available in my Ravelry store at 20% off for the month of February - no coupon code required.  You can download it here.

I hope you are having a great knitting week :)
