I recently sat down and learned this short row technique for a toe up sock and it's pretty slick. I showed some folks at GLBT-Knit Camp last weekend in Vermont and they asked me to put together a tutorial, so I've done just that.
In the process of binding off Rose of England, a design by Marianne Kinzel. I'm knitting the 'tea' sized, but as a shawl.
A Rose/Raspberry (in natural light it's an 'Old rose' shade) of Douceur et Soie; size 6 US needles.
14 of the 50 motifs cast off at this point.
here's a photo of the start of the second attempt with this yarn - as many of you know on my blog I chronicled the farewell of Gregg's sweater - it was sized poorly - so here's what I'm working on - as it's constructed you'll see more of what it will look like - :) So far, I like what it looks like. You also will notice my little wheat penny stitch markers in the photo .... I rode to work with my BF this morning and got to knit while he drove - the start of a lovely day! Happy Friday everyone!
