Yes, I have been knitting. I was waiting for my yarn to make my Cookie Sock Innovation Lindsay sock, and just didn't want to work on anything else. So... Knit4Many told me about a pattern she used and I liked it and had enough yarn on hand so I started here. I am knitting this Textured Shawl Recipe pattern in the new Comfy Bulky, in Cutlass.
Monday evening my yarn for the socks showed up, so I tried a test swatch - perfect! Then later the same day I cast on and did my garter stitch cuff - very nice, knit my set up rnd for the chart and stopped until morning.
Tuesday I discovered that the stitch count didn't add up right... so I stopped. Went back to my shawl and knitted all day yesterday. Then I discovered that there were errata/corrections already out for the Cookie A book, so I relooked at the pattern, made a few of my own changes so that I could continue knitting. Here is the sock, with three chart repeats - it is currently 3 1/2 inches long -- need 2 1/2 more inches before I start the garter stitch short row heel. Except for the problem with stitch count, this is a very nice pattern. And I love the little pops of color in the Essential Tweed - Inca Gold.
