I have finished objects to show off today! I would have shown them off last week but I didn’t have any good photos to go with them.
First up is the Hitchhiker scarf that I started during Thanksgiving. I used Sanguine Gryphon’s Skinny Bugga! in the Experimental Love Child Colorway. I absolutely loved knitting with this yarn! So soft!
I managed to also get 42 points out of a 450 yard skein. The last 4 points were done by removing 2 rows from the pattern. Yes, I fudged it, but I really wanted my 42 points!!! This was knit on US 7 (4.5mm) needles.
As you can see in the second photo the leg has a mock cable running on the ribbing. This is a pattern that I just made up. A simple 2×2 rib with a slip stitch heel borderd by garter stitch to make the picking up for the gusset super easy and quick! I just did my normal toe on this one. It is super comfy and I can’t wait to cast on its mate!
This turned out stunning. I did have to cut out two repeats on the border because I was running out of yarn. I ended with about 10 yards of yarn left. I’m sure its new owner will love it just as much!
