A fish out of water July 19, 2007

Filed under: FO,knitting,pomatomus — Emily @ 12:51 pm


Pattern: Pomatomus, by Cookie A.
Needles: US 0 (2.00mm) Crystal Palace Bamboo
Yarn: Yarn Pirate Merino/Tencel in Quicksilver
Mods: None really. I knit the toe a little shorter and not so pointy, but otherwise I followed the pattern to the letter.




Here you can see my only issue, and I know what I would do differently.  My YO’s were so huge on the left side of the instep.  If I knit these again, I’d bypass the YO on that row and then on the next row just pick up the bar (as if to do a M1) and then I’d have my YO.


I figured out how to use the super-tulip function on my camera!  (OK, I know that’s really a super macro function.  I just like to be silly sometimes.)  You know what else is silly?  I chose to wear these to work today!  Really, it’s only 88o outside today.


This shot is a pretty good representation of the colors in the sock.


Look at how my toenail is starting to separate from my toe on the bottom. (Look at the crappy airbrushing I did to hide my toe hair.)

I know I said that I was going to work on Reid’s sleeves next, but I feel like I’d be forcing myself.  I’ll probably start Bellatrix tonight.  We’ll see if my chosen yarn will work with the drop stitch pattern.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your socks!!! Hve you seen the wrist warmers based on that pattern? I saw them in person, she said she got the pattern on line, maybe Knitty? Poor toe! I did lose one like that, but a new one grew in behind it and after a bit it looked like it should.

    Woman you need to WARN people before posting pics of that toe after such lovely pics of your Pomotomi. Ouch.

    They’re gorgeous. That pattern kicked my ass and stole my name. You’re better than me for finishing a pair! I barely got through 1 repeat!

    Ok, that is the PERFECT color yarn for that pattern. Really. Though I’m jealous that you actually had your hands on a skein of Yarn Pirate. I’m never quick enough.

    Ouch. Bad toe. Bad. On the other hand, it does match your socks.
