What does "Zarte Knospe" mean?
I think it is German, but I take your word for it, let me check it on bing translate. It says tender bud, so close enough right? lol
I have no idea. it's the name of the yarn colorway
The pattern is a great one and I love the fact that Mill donates the proceeds of the sales to the scholarship fund for the Men's Knitting Retreats.
Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Got the needles, got the yarn......HERE I GO!!!!!!
We are here to help if you come into challenges. Congratulations and hope to see them soon.
One thing I found when I knit my pair was that a gauge swatch is very important...I had to rip back and go up a needle size to ensure a proper fit.
Definitely a swatch so you know if you have the right needles for the job!
As always, brilliant workmanship! What bind off do you use? It' so neat and tidy.
Thank you Mark. I do the Kitchener graft. Since I have two strands at the toe I pull hard,lol. I also put the needle through and weave the tails on the inside of the toe
Thanks Andy....is the CO anything different, like a stretchy one? Because I do toe-up socks so far, I was looking at the top of the sock thinking that was your binding off.
I have always done a long tail cast on for this pattern and it has worked for me. I find it very stretchy.
Thanks Andy. I am planning on learning the top-down method soon, so it's nice to know that a regular CO works.
This is wonderfull... I like it...
sorry for my english... normally I speak French...
