So say Farewell. She is gone. For ever.
I was fighting against the winds also in other aspects of my life Tuesday morning than just knitting ... and let's not forget the very strong northerly wind that was blowing on my face and through my clothing and spoiling my usually pleasant walk the very same morning and made me hate the weather too...and finally the poor cardi had it all. I did not pull gently but did tug, the yarn did snap and in the end I did use scissors and then finally the cardi did reach the point where the rest did go to the garbage bag. But here what is left of her. This was supposed to be the knit for the book The Life of Pi. Those of you who don't know, Pi's mother never made it to Canada, she was doomed and so was this cardi.
Don't feel sorry. This is fine and the end of this story. Let's pick up a new book.
These three from the bottom are Wendy's toe-up sock pattern and the two are variations on her pattern. They are otherwise the same, except I tried two different ways to the second half of the toe. So it is not difficult but it does feel awkward and I don't like it very much just now. But I think I will use one of these patterns on some fabulous sock yarn that I don't feel like wasting one bit. Are there any other toe-up socks patterns out there that I should try?
PS. The green stockings are from the book handknit HOLIDAYS by Melanie Falick. I know several books have some stockings in them but I don't know if there is a book that would have mostly stockings in it. Anyone know any?
