The Harry Potter sweater continues to grow. I’m about a half an inch shy of splitting for the armhole decreases. All in all, it is going pretty fast with a 9 month old around. I’m thinking it will have a few inches of ease, so it should be comfy and cosy (not just oversized- right??).
I finally started my mom’s socks. She didn’t want anything lacy, so I opted for a 3×1 rib. I’m not in love with the pooling, but I couldn’t stand the thought of starting them for an 11th time (no, I’m not kidding). I figure my mom can deal. 🙂 I’m just about to pick up stitches for the gusset.
And one finished item. This was actually done awhile ago, but I kept forgetting to take pictures of the finished stocking. I still need to duplicate stitch Henry’s name onto the instep and add a loop for hanging, but nothing too major. I really enjoyed this project and the end result is really nice. Ravelry link here.
