Finally Marlene is done and off needles.
Pattern: Marlene by Cookie A.
Source: Knit 1 Fall/Winter 2008
Yarn: Koigu # 1128, 2 skeins
Needles: #1 (should have used #2…)
Modifications: None, I followed the pattern exactly but I should have used a bigger needle. Even though it’s hard to get them over my and my sister’s ankles the fit is great once they are on. Thanks to Sarah for encouraging me to finish them.
The other thing I would have done differently was not decrease to 14 stitches. It makes the toes a bit to pointy for me. But no matter. I absolutely love them.
My sister is modeling while laying on the couch with Kira taking a nap on her chest. That’s actually a good thing. It will give me a chance to go hide them since I may have to go back on giving these to her as a gift. I think I want to keep them. Is that bad? The other day she took back a lip gloss she gave me. Now we’re even…I’ll make it up to her I promise. Now I know what you all are thinking. Just give them to her, because I’m not going to wear them anyway. But it took me so long to finish them. Excuse while I go get some cheese to go with this wine…
It’s hard to give away cookies…
