Yesterday was a big day here at FogKnits Headquarters. I got a job!?! Well, really it sort of fell into my lap and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I start Wednesday. That’s so soon! I’ve only got four more nights to stay up late knitting. Ack! I took full advantage last night and finished my Daybreak!
The applied lace bind off took two weeks! That’s a new record for my slowest bind off! I love the effect though! It was the perfect treatment for this self striping yarn! I thought the prescribed garter ridge bind off would look a bit too variegated because the rows had gotten so long. By turning the border sideways I was able to keep the stripes in the yarn looking like stripes instead of distracting blobs! I can’t wait for it to dry!!
Otherwise, I followed the pattern as written and I’m very pleased with the results. The striping yarn is a sock blank my Mom dyed. My goal was to highlight her awesome colors. Done and done! It couldn’t have gone better!
