Yesterday I finally finished my La Digitessa socks. They could have been finished a month ago but I spent February working on a project that had a strict deadline and the socks just had to wait. Aren’t they lovely?
I did a new bind off that I hadn’t used before. I like it a lot and will use it from now on for toe up socks. These were my first toe-ups and I’m SOLD on this method! I learned about the bind off on Ravelry and from this site. Here’s how you do it:
Work 2 sts in pattern (either knit or purl). Move yarn to back (if the last worked st was a knit, this is already the case). * Transfer the 2 worked sts to the LH needle, and k2togTBL. Work 1 st in pattern (move yarn to back if it was a purl), * repeat between *.
Too bad they are too big for me! After a wash and dry I’ll be sending them in the mail to Mom. It will be the second pair of socks I’ve made for her. I only have 2 pair of self made socks for myself! I need to get busy on the next pair…. Spina di Pesce! Join the Ravelry KAL here.
