Hi my name is Devon and I love to knit and I am a perfectionist. Therefore the amount of things I knit is very low. Rusted Root is a great top - knit from the top down. I love the color of yarn I have chosen and once I really get going I think I am really going to love it. I especially love that it is knit in the round.
I have cast this top on at least 7 times and never made it past the 8th row - What is wrong with me? (on second thought, don't answer that). Now that I have ripped it again I picked up my needles and knit just the lace pattern. This seems to be my main problem. It occurred to me that I also like to make things far more difficult then they need to be. I learned a new technique with this which is pretty cool, it is called a tubular cast on. It is perfect for casting on in ribbing and it is really stretchy. The funny thing is that this is not the cast on originally called for - but I would rather learn something new then pick up stitches for a color later. BO never looks very nice at the neck line when I do it.
I wish I had more to show and report, but that is life as a knitting ripper.
My next sock project, are these wonderfully gorgeous Azure pattern on knitty. Aren't they gorgeous?
