First, thanks for the compliments on the latest tee and for the comments & advice on sewing with the slippery stuff ! I'll give these tips a try...tacking or pinning the ends first should help the uneven start and Ann, I checked out the video on the neckline. Thanks alot ! That is really clear on how to make the band fit - where it needs to stretch more and where not so much. The link was bookmarked right away :-)
As I'd hoped, I worked on the 2nd sock in the car during our drive to Toronto. I had turned the heel and done the orange and the dark grey stripes. It's a pointy toe and needed to be decreased until only 2 stitches were on each needle - I wasn't taking a chance on dropping any stitches while the car was moving so I safely stopped just before the end and did the last couple of decreases once we arrived.
Pattern: Briggs & Little Fine Socks (As a New Brunswicker, I feel kinda happy that my first pair was from a New Brunswick company - supporting local business & all that)
Yarn: Opal Crazy # 1903
Needles: 2.75 mm
And, on me... my goodness, it's hard to take pictures of your own feet ! LOL!
This is what I was working on
