As my mother-in-law-to-be was kind enough to add a lovely ball of multicoloured Drops Big Delight in my knitting first aid kit, I pondered what to do with it. It is so colourful that maybe I wouldn't wear it as a hat. And being 100% wool it also seemed a bit itchy for wristwarmers. So, socks!
But here's where the perfect ends: after casting on the required 48 sts for size 38/40 and knitting the 3n 3p rib (mental note: looks bad, don't do this again) for a couple of cms, the sock looked like it was meant for a giant. WTF?! What went wrong, help? How was my knitting suddenly so different than in the gauge swatch? Ripping it all I started again with the 5 mm needles and hoped for a miracle. A minor improvement, yes, but I'm pretty sure that the socks will still be too big for me. Well, colourful socks for the boyfriend! Just need to get some elastic cord to get those ribbings to stay in form.
|Also the fuzziest yarn ever|
