Re: KAL ~ Christmas is Coming! Dec 9-15

Another question:
If gauge is listed as 4x5 stitches per inch... which of those numbers is the row count and which is the stitches across each row? The last pattern I did it was written differently, ie: x stitches and y rows over 4 inches

I'd take that as 4 stitches across by 5 rows

I have drpp stitch E and the garter stitch edging to go before the ruffle but I only have enough colourway for one more row. Should I do the last bit in thr ruffle colour which is pink? Or will it look wierd.

Well hot dang, if that's the case, then somehow I've nearly got gauge on the 10's! Sweet.

The reason I asked about adding 2 was because it didn't make sense, I was thinking it'd be take away two. Glad I double checked
I'm wondering if the add 2 was to make the ribbing even. I think you just need to make sure it is a multiple of 4 to for ribbing.

Dragon's Lair with trim, to be my Smaug Knee Socks


Woodland Friends with Pink. Must FIND MOAR for Elowyn!


And not from facebook but the Rav coop, to accompany my Smaug Socks, "Hobbits" custom


This is the true definition of happy feet, I'm telling you!
Ohhh pretties. Kid3 will have a pair of apple picking longies next fall. Of course, it won't be hand spun because mom is not that talented. Still a super pretty colorway.

I would stop the colorway and just do the ruffle myself. You may not "see" the last set of stitches if it is the same color as the ruffle.

Love the fluff haul you got! I'll be on the lookout on Ravelry for more Woodland Friends with pink. Any specific bases you want me to look for?

Yay, for finished socks, Fi!

Cute blanket Cassie!

Busy, stressful morning. No knitting done yet...boo.
