Yikes!

I’m a day late and way behind – I had jury duty yesterday and everything here is just nuts. I have some pictures but not much time for description. But I’m sure you won’t mind.

One Panopticon sock – Upstream architecture, feather and fan leg and i cord bindoff.

This is just a WEE tad snug around the arch, I guess in this yarn I need to go up to a 60 stitch foot circumference. But it will be acceptable, no ripping planned.

It is so funny to me that the same increase pattern works upside down or rightside up – this is an inversion of the Sky architecture, where the increases fan out in a triangle on top of your foot from a point at the anklebone – so, a triangle that widens down from the top over the arch. Upstream is a triangle where the increases fan out in a triangle on top of your foot from a point at the bottom of your arch – totally upside down from Sky. For my money, Sky fits better, but that could just have been my slight mis-guess on the gauge.

Garnet is finished. I took just about all of 7 skeins of Noro Lily. It fits perfectly and I love the fabric I got on size 5s, it isn’t going to sag. Sorry about the orange shorts, I wouldn’t ordinarily wear it with orange shorts…

That’s all gotta run!

    Wowza, Garnet is gorgeous! It fits perfectly. Then again, I’ve never seen you make anything that didn’t fit perfectly. Great job.

    You look great in that sweater, even with orange shorts! I like how you are doing such an intensive sock “study.” It really interests me, although I don’t have the book to understand each architecture. What I am most impressed with is how reflective you are about your knitting! You’ll be designing socks in no time… 🙂

    Lovely work on Garnet! I saw a sample at Amanda’s in Poulsbo, WA and immediately bought a copy of Elsebeth Lavold’s book that contains Garnet. Thanks for inspiring me!

    Your Garnet sweater is lovely! Impeccably knit, too.
