I have finally completed the Chutes and Ladders portion of the KAL. It will be hard not to have those socks with me 24/7. They have certainly traveled for the past 2 months! One thing, I ripped the toe decrease back to the 48 stitches and added another inch.
What a difference that made in the length of the foot. It feels good to have them finished and be able to move on. Tigger is in the last stages of completion with sewing the sides and adding buttons and a closure. The pattern was found on knitty.com. I made the size 2 with no yarn to spare. I followed the instructions to the letter and am sewing the side with the Berrocco. The closure will be Berrocco as well. Ordering an extra bell of yarn for the sake of completing a pattern without running out is definitely worth it. It doesn’t pay to get cheap, although this little baby set me back about $50. As for the pattern, it was a pleasure to knit. I loved the feel of the Luxor yarn, too bad that it has been discontinued. I would live in a sweater, my size, if I wasn’t living the what seems to be the warmest state in the union.
