FO friday

I will just allow a moment to bask in the fact: I remembered it's friday.

Ok I haven't woven in the ends of my second project, nor have I photographed them but LOOK!!
I made Knee Highs. These are knit two at a time , magic loop style starting at the toe. These were the actual first pair I tried this way but they took longer to finish being knee high. I love this way of using up every scrap of yarn. I've not properly road tested them yet, just swanked round the house but aren't they pretty?


I got the bind off right this time:
Step 1: Knit 1
Step 2: K2tog through back loop
Step 3 pass both these 2 stitches back onto left needle.

Repeat K1, K2tog tbl and passing back onto left until all are knit- nice and stretchy. 

For more FO's, check out FO fridays, hosted by Tamis.

Nice! I like to use Judy's Stretchy Bind Off which is basically a regular bind off but before passing the k1 over the next stitch, you do a YO and then pass the stitch over.

I don't think I'll ever have the patience for knee highs! These are lovely.

Those are amazing. I love black-and-red, and knee-high socks, so I'm all heart-eyed about them.

Beautiful knee highs, I love the simplicity & the pretty colors & how well knit they are! I think I've only made one badly shaped pair of knee highs in my sock knitting career.

I love the colour! I just wish I could have the patience for knitting socks let alone knee-highs. Such beautiful knitting, well done!
