The legwarmers are ready to mail to Ella! Nice way to use up a partial skein of sock yarn!
I cast on 50 stitches with 2.5 needles.
I made a hat from a pattern on Craftsy. It was a good knit but I did have some count trouble with the picked up stitches along the cable band. I will try it again and see if it goes more smoothly next time! (yarn is KnitPicks chunky and the pattern is the Weekend Cable Beret by Julia Marsh.
I cast on a new shawl; I haven't made one in a long time. This one has a knit band on the bottom and then you pick up stitches and knit up into a crescent shape using short rows. It took forever to get this far. Not a joy on any level. RIP!
I pulled out some sock yarn and now it moves right along! Both of the samples have the same number of rows, one chart's worth. The lace weight has 2" and the sock weight has 4". I have found my yarn for this pattern!
