Just thought I'd check in and say hello - and post some recent stuff. A cardigan for my Mum's 70th birthday; a scarf for a friend's 50th; and a wedding tie for me! Me and my partner will be celebrating our civil partnership in 2 weeks (the day after teh royal wedding) After a 9am dash to the registry office, we'll be preparing lunch for our friends. So along with icing a cake or two, I thought I'd knit a tie to wear. Al bought me back some beautiful very fine hand-dyed wool from Orkney - you may remember I was extolling the virtues of North Ronaldsay sea-weed eating, beach-living sheep - so I've started.
Does anyone have any advice about decreasing in seed stitch? I want to avoid a 'stepped' side by k2tog or p2tog at each edge but can' think how to work the decreases any other way. I usually decrease in from the side. I could slip 1/k2tog/psso in the middle but I thought it would show.
Hope everyone's doing well...I'm off to Orkney in June so I'll happily take orders...there's lovely fine north ronaldsay wool in natural greys and browns too.
