KBS Grows a Bit. A New Sock o Be Born

Okay. I've fixed the quarter panel. Ever notice when you re-knit partially the yarn is either too short or too long. Had to pick at the stitches to even out the yarn displacement for each row.

Now I'm on row 43. Ten more than yesterday. I'm still working on the same YO pattern in the center of the shawl. Only ten rows away from the Van Dyke and Rib pattern portion. Can't wait to get to that point. It's already large enough to switch to one circular needle.

I'm still dropping YO stitches from time to time. But I just need a crochet hook to pick them up. Whew. Don't want to go through the big frogging again. Luckily it's more obvious on the knit fabric where the stitch is missing.

For the socks I thought I might do a contrast yarn for the heels and toes. I'm hoping to use some superwash stash yarn with maybe a 'Wooly Nylon Thread' to reinforce those parts. The thread is strong and stetchy, used mainly to (sew) serger the sides of bathing suits. It's going to be some time before I knit to those parts. So I have time to find it. Unless if someone suggests something better to pair with my stash yarn.

I'll be casting on my first stitch tonight. Whoo hoo!


Hope you enjoy making the socks! Have fun. :)
