Joining with Ginny for the Yarn Along today.
This past weekend, I stitched down the cast on edges of DD1's Dottie Socks II to make the picot edge. They came out really cute; I think she's going to love them. I couldn't resist modeling for a picture even though they are too big around for me. Which means they should fit her ankles perfectly.
While looking for a tutorial to confirm my thoughts on how I was supposed to whipstitch the edge down, forming the picot trim, I found a different way of making picot edging on socks. I think next time I will try that and eliminate the need to come back after knitting the entire sock to make the picots.
With the socks finished, and a blazingly hot and humid Sunday in which yard work or gardening were a death wish, I decided to cast on for a penguin wash cloth. Because, well, DD1 also loves penguins. And I have purple dish cloth yarn in my stash for just such a project. Looking at this picture now, I realize that the sundress I was wearing on Sunday also has quite a bit of purple. . .
