I finished the second Wee Envelope yesterday. A baseball doubleheader, the Sunday football game, and the ride to church combined to make for a great knitting weekend! A couple of mods on this one: I picked up the stitches so that the seam was on the inside. I like that detail from the original pattern, but my seam edge looked sloppy so I reworked it. I also added at least an inch to the sleeve length which was short when knit and when double checked against the schematics. The fit is otherwise fine.
Knit on US 4 Needles with one of my favorite cotton yarns, Sublime Organic Cotton DK - very sadly discontinued and one I snatch up on ebay whenever I see it.
I also meant to give a review of the Fish Lips Kiss Sock Heel upon finishing my Gingerbread Socks. It was wonderfully pleasant to knit. I timed the knitting of the second heel one morning and it took me under an hour to finish the entire heel and I wasn't even focusing. The heel is tidy and attractive. The fit is perfect. I have yet to wear them because it's still not cold here but I'm pleased enough to repeat the heel on my current sock. I'm knitting this next one top down as the heel works both ways.
Sunshine Merino Sport in "Gingerbread" Knit on US 2. For the most part.
I'm behind on lesson planning (and kind of everything else) after this little knitting binge but it feels so good to be at it again after not knitting much for the past 2+ years.
OK! It's Monday morning and I can hear all of my children stirring! All the best to you as you start your week, friends!
