On my couch or at work

Remember when I said I have a high instep? September 2, 2010

Yeah.  Too high.

Did not work

I even followed the instructions for a high instep, but clearly there’s just not enough stretch in the leg of the sock to get that far.

So yeah, these will be frogged – unless someone I really like comes along with size 6.5 feet and a very low instep.

But isn’t the color wonderful?

So now I’m swatching for a vest for me.  I’ve got Cascade 220, and I need a good pattern.  Suggestions?  I want a simple stockinette V-neck.  Right  now I’m looking at modifying either the Gilmore Vest or the Sweetheart Vest to fit my gauge but I’m open to other patterns if you know of any.

    It seems like it should be so easy to find such a vest pattern, and yet… Hilja on Ravelry looks promising, but in a single size and probably would still need modification. If you can find a copy of the Winter/Spring 2010 Knitscene (sold out, and pattern not listed individually) the Ninebark cowl pattern includes the vest. I remember considering modding that pattern for a v-neck instead of modding Gilmore for gauge when I did my vest back in February. The good news – I didn’t find modding Gilmore for gauge troublesome.

    or put them away for the girls? 6.5 is pretty small… the oldest should be there in, oh, a decade, right?

    Ooo. Bad sock. Bad, bad sock.

    I’ll check and see what we’ve got in the pattern book at the shop. Shouldn’t be hard to find a decent vest pattern.
