I'm tired of socks


I've gotten bored with socks. Imagine that! So I decided I would knit this (scroll down to the Clementine Shawlette).

Now you see it

I really love the stitch detail in this, as simple as it is.

Now you don't.....sigh

You see, I'm so used to knitting socks and following charts for IN THE ROUND knitting....that I didn't even think about my nice little shawlette needing to be knit back and forth and reading my chart right to left, then left to right. That explains why my edges were rolling! (rolling eyes here) I kept thinking...I sure hope this blocks out okay! THEN I took a closer look at the picture (it helped that I saw an episode on Knitty Gritty about reading charts!)

And I was half way finished with the second chart! Waaaaahhhhhhh!

Luckily, it is fun to knit. Just easy enough but with enough variety that I'm not getting bored.

I'm off to start back again....
