Realized that in the commotion of the holidays, C's detached retina, grant deadline month at work, I forgot to post a finished project:
Pattern: Pretty Thing by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. adding repeats for more length.
Yarn: Design Club Duo Silk Merino (Denmark) Laceweight
Needles: Addi turbo size 5 or 6. Pretty sure it was a 6.
Thoughts: If it has to fit over your head, needing the elasticity of a sewn bind off, why not use the complimentary provisional cast on? You know what I mean, knitters? Why would you want only one end to be stretchy? Also added a more finished top edge, not wanting the folded over look in projects that added length, by using my provisional cast on to add a 1x1 ribbed top with a picot edge, so it’s technically up-side-down.
Would I make this again? Maybe, definitely adding in the ribbing on one end.
How is the patient? Exhibiting a sense of humour while visiting the hospital for a followup visit:
