I am finally on the bottom ribbing of my vee neck boxy, I love it, its super pretty. I made a small modification…I started the ribbing 2 inches early, so I’ll have a full 3 inches of ribbing instead of one. Ribbing is SLOW for me now, kinda tedious. Add to that my choice of a twisted rib and it gets even more tedious…21 rows by over 300 stitches per row. I am currently on row 9. It looks very pretty, though,and I know I’ll love it. Of course, along with the extended ribbing I plan on long sleeves instead of 3/4 length, and (get ready for it!) 6 inches of ribbing so I can fold the cuffs. Sometimes I think I’m a crazy person! I am hoping I can get both sleeves on the needles at the same time, so I know just how much wool I have to work with…maybe I’ll be saved from 6 inches of cuff!
I am also waiting on these skeins to dry so I can do a shop update. Its kinda like watching paint dry! There are some pretty things happening here!
How do you feel about a merino/mohair/nylon blend sock yarn? I’m kind of intrigued and want to try some.
