When I first saw the pattern for Pomatomus, I thought I would lose my mind trying to knit it. It still looks like it would be hard to knit.
But really, it’s just a k1tbl p1 rib, with a yo and k2togtbl thrown in for biasing. Brilliant pattern, but so easy to follow and rather intuitive once you get started. (I admit that at this time I haven’t moved onto the foot portion, so I don’t know how that’s going to work for me.)
Reid, however, didn’t look all that tough, but it’s a booger for me to keep track of. I can’t look at what I did the previous row and figure out what comes next! If I make a mistake, I generally only notice it by counting my stitches in every section.
I think Reid made me a little knit-shy.
In more Pomatomus news, I am halfway through the second repeat of the leg chart. I’m still very happy with the way it’s progressing. The merino/tencel blend, while being a bit splitty, is becoming a very soft, sleek fabric. Because the sock is essentially a k1 p1 rib, it’s very squishy and it makes me happy just to fondle it. Speaking of which, I shall go knit on it some more.
