Finished these last night. Vigorous knitting all weekend.
Yarn is from @kylaslab (kylacrawford88 on #Ravelry) and pattern is Rose City Rollers from @orangeknits (maracatherine on #Ravelry).

This is from Cookie A’s book Sock Innovation, the pattern Vilai. As with all things crafty, once I master something I always want to dive in head-first into the deep end. These were started on an evening where inspiration struck (at 10 pm, like it usually does) and I grabbed the needles and yarn and went for it. I’m not sure, but this might be the second most complicated sock in the book.
Foot. At the time of the photos (about last weekend), I only had that
much worked up. I’ve gotten back into finishing these (well, the first
of a pair) and I’m further along than this current picture, I’ll say to
shortly before the ball of my foot. I had turned back to this, which was smashed in between the pages of the book containing the pattern, after having failed at tatting something more than a beginner item. (I told you this would happen: I get the first two steps down and suddenly want to improvise and hope that it turns out great…such was not the case).
My aim is to finish these by the end of next month, which would’ve been a bit more attainable had I not forgotten book and sock at home…
Oh baiklah, Mas. To d point ya, bgmn jika ada pria yg mengajak seorg wanita utk membuat komitmen utk menikah dlm jangka waktu 2 atau 3 tahun k dpn? Apa sikap terbaik yg mesti diambil oleh wanita itu jika ia setuju utk berkomitmen. Thx, Mas :)
agustinor Buat saya pribadi, itu terlalu lama. Lebih baik enggak usah ada komitmen-komitmenan. Komitmen pada diri masing-masing saja buat terus memperbaiki diri, buat siapapun jodohnya kelak. :)
you will need to be able to do: the long-tail cast-on, working small circumferences in the round (DPNs, 2-circulars, or magic loop), knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, stranded knitting, chart reading, mattress stitch
As promised, here is the picture of my first knitted hat, the Butterfly Knit Beret by redheartyarns, as modeled by Rex the Pumpkin head! This project was problematic, as I bought the wrong yarn (Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, instead of RHB Midnight), used the wrong size needles (size 8 circulars and size 7 DPNs to finish instead of starting with size 7 circulars and size 9 circulars/DPNs; there’s a good reason for this, I don’t own a pair of size 9 circulars or DPNs), and a lot of stitches were dropped (and thankfully regained) towards the end.
Probably going to give that to Marah for her birthday, it’ll fit her head better than mine. I’m going to give the Daydream Hat a try; it uses yarn that I have, and needles that I have, so it should be nice :D
