one down one to go
used the pattern stitch of the conwy sock from "knitting on the road", but didn't use the shaping, it would have been way too narrow if i would have decreased down to 60 stitches.
this is the right sock, i knit all my socks with anatomically correct toes.
it's very easy. instead of doing all the decrease rows the same way, every alternate decrease row you begin-- needle 1- knit to last 4 sts, k3tog, k1. needle 2- k1, sssk, knit to end of needle. needles 3&4, knit. you get a nice gently sloping toe.
for the left sock, simply do the alternate decrease rows doing the k3tog and sssk on needles 3&4, and knitting plain on needles 1&2. there will be a test lisa ;-)
and now for my newest love, our screen porch. some of you know this already and your eyes are glazing over, i have developed a severe allergy to bees, wasps and ants. unfortunately it has affected my life more than i would have ever dreamt. living in florida does not help. we finally had our porch screened in :-) was supposed to happen over a year ago, but all those hurricanes kept the screen company very busy. i cannot wait til it cools off here and i can sit on the porch, spin and knit without fear of my life!!!
thanks for all the comments, who'd a thunk i'd be a comment ho?
