Remember Harvey? When I knit it for my unusually-large child last fall in the 3-6 month size, I assumed it would be just right. Turns out, it was huge. Then this spring, it was still kind of large. And now, on my still-unusually-large 9 month old, it’s still kind of big!
He’ll be able to wear it this fall! What’s *up* with that? Not that I’m complaining, mind you.
Knitting has progressed, but since 4 repeats of the leaf lace shawl looks about like 3–that is to say, a crumpled mess–I will give you a peek of how the Pebble Beach socks are turning out.
…and I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I actually like the striping. Or did, at least.
I was okay with the striping! But then there was flashing, and now there’s striping again. And I know what you’re saying out there. “Come on, Amy. This is just a sock. No need to get neurotic.” And you’re probably right.
But don’t you think it looks a little bit weird? Please tell me. And please be honest, now. Because I’m not sure I can learn to wear and love these socks. And I’m happy giving them away, if they’re not objectively hideous. But I don’t want to gift someone with hideous socks and not even realize it.
(Although I am so thoroughly in love with the heel that it’s hard to express in words.)
