This is a Test. This is Not a Sock.
This is a test. This is not a sock.
I have not yet knit a sock, and don't promise to do so any time soon, either.
This is a test swatch for knitting up my Long Time No Sea yarn and its companion ecru yarn into a bucket hat.
This swatch has told me that this yarn will never be a bucket hat. To create a firm fabric for the brim, the needle size needed is a U.S. size zero. There is no way.
Lace. I will knit my first lace project instead. I've had my eye on the Feather and Fan stitch, otherwise known as Old Shale.
