Giving The Girlfriend Socks
They're roll-top socks, and have a slip-stitch heel for durability. The kitchener stitched toes, once the scourge of my existence, were achieved through obsessive You Tube video lessons. The yarn is the lovely Schaeffer Nichole, and the needle size is US 2.5.
On the Brioche stitch project I cannot claim as much success. I have done well with the one color brioche swatch. I then cast on my reversible scarf project. I'm having a little trouble fully understanding what I am to do for the set up row and for row 1. The designer may have written it perfectly and I am overthinking it, or she may have given sparse instructions where I need the gaps filled in. I'll be trying again tonight, and I'll let you know!
