For the past few weeks I’ve been looking for a project to get me excited. All this stockinette has led to me all but avoiding knitting! Well we can’t have that, right?
It’s Susan’s Branching Out from the latest Knitty.
I’m using Artyarns Supermerino in color 110 on a US 7. The colors look pretty true on my monitor. I tried out this yarn before Christmas for a pair of socks for my Mom but I just couldn’t get the yarn to look right for socks. They never seemed correctly sized — either a bit big and droopy or too tight and stretched out — so I frogged the sock and the yarn has been in my stash ever since.
I modified the pattern slightly. I started out with just 2 rows of garter and I eliminated the garter edge going up the sides. I was hoping the edges would scallop and they are! It’s about 6 inches wide. I have 230 yards of the yarn and I’m planning to just knit until I run out.
