A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Pattern: Clothilde by Kristen Hanley Cardozo
Yarn: Butternut Woolens 3-Ply Sport
Needles: US6 Addi Turbo Lace
Notes: I knit two repeats of the Spearhead lace and realized, after I bound off, that I probably had enough yarn for a third. But I'm gun-shy now and didn't want to risk running out of yarn again. I also did the stretchy bind off where you knit two then place the left needle into the fronts of the two stitches and knit them together like an SSK. I've also seen instructions for this where you slip the two stitches back to the right needle and knit through the back loop. I don't know why you'd do this since the version I did saves the tedious step of slipping the stitches but that is how it's most often written.
