Notes

My very first:
1) Christmas stocking
2) Latvian Braid
3) Stranding
It was a steep learning curve, but I managed to finish it and I’m rather happy with it. I will not, however, ever ever ever post a picture of the “floats” of the leg part. It would reveal why I had to dip into a second ball of white… I was adamant I would not succumb to stranded work with using both left and right hand. After all, I read that 40% of Fair Islanders knit with both yarns in their right hand, so I would be able to do the same. My tension was all over the place and after turning the heel I was desperate enough to give it a go. I will NEVER look back. Combined knitting is the way forward for stranding. Now I need to knit one for myself within a week, otherwise this one will be rather lonely over the fire place.
