Yet Another Knit A-Long!

This time, it's a hat-based one called "If the Hat Fits". I joined because on Monday and Tuesday I did this:

And busted my wrist in the process. Humph. Knitting with super-thick yarn on US15 needles hurts.

Yarn: Sirdar Denim Ultra Chunky in Heather
Needles: Size US15/10 mm (precisely 9.95 mm) Denise Interchangeable set
Pattern: my own Harry Hat one (again)

I forgot to take account of the cables pulling the fabric in when I calculated the number of stitches at the wrist and therefore the rate of decrease. I wasn't a huge problem, I just dropped down a few stitch to un-do a decrease a few rows below and everything was fine.


I've been working on them on-and-off because I can't knit them whilst watching anything significant on TV, and I tend to want to complete an entire pattern repeat in one sitting. That aside, this is the progress I've made:

Not too bad!

I photographed the first sock with it, just to prove (to myself?) that I really had started the second one!

The new Six Sox pattern is now up, and it's a Shadow-knit sock with a heart motif.

I'm not a big "heart" fan, especially after I found out what it is a representation of (and it ain't your heart), but I think I've come to terms with it and since they are only socks, I think I could live with it!

This post was brought to you by the Sciatic Nerve, an orthapedic mattress and the wireless internet! Humph again.
