A Paw

 The first Tuxie Love sock is finished!
 I chose to duplicate stitch the paw print on the bottom of the toe.
 I had to get my magnifier lamp out-these are tiny stitches!
 I added a center reference point so I could keep my eyes focused on the right rows!
 After three false starts, it came back to me
 and the rhythm of the stitches fell into place!
 I almost despaired, let me tell you!
 I am not thrilled with the look of the inside
 and will do better on the second sock.
I did test wear it and you don't feel any bumps at least!
It is a very cute touch to the sock
 and I think I will make it the same way on the next sock
 but on the NEXT pair, I will try Intarsia knitting to get the job done!

  4. So cute!!! I just had a terrible experience trying to embroider on knit material. I can't see well enough to keep my place anymore even with the magnifier on super chunky yarn. I think it's my brain and not my eyes.

  5. Your duplicate stitch is sooooo much better than mine. You should have seen what mine looked like.

    When I was designing, I was really worried about how it would feel on the toes, but like you I was pleasantly surprised!

Neglect

 The studio is feeling neglected but a little bit of knitting is happening and........ a little bit of piecing.  All in good time. ...
