wow. just… wow. the foot looks like if you turned my mom’s socks inside out. i kind of liked how crazy different the colors were as it made it easier then to see my stitches (having started, what… 8-9 months and many projects ago?). but you have seriously persevered - good for you!
“just… wow” is a very diplomatic comment, thank you. :mrgreen:
The atrociousness of them aside…I worked on making the fit more acceptable which includes short rows to make the back of the foot taller and short rows to add more room at the ball of the foot. Next time, sole first and no Kitchener stitch. I did k2tog and k2tog tbl on ends of the graft to help make the noses the seam produced less pronounced.
but seriously, i really do think you did a nice job. that cannot have been easy to work with for that stitch pattern… i’m actually wondering how ‘blacklight’ would look for those spiral fingerless gloves… i’m getting a whole “jefferson airplane meets granny squares” mental image, and i kind of like it…
Psychedelic lives!!! I think the spiral sounds like a great idea.
I could call the slippers Timothy Leery. If I had prewashed the yarn, and I’ve read how to do it in the skein but don’t have the nerve to try, it would have been better to work with. It was just so rough and doing the crochet was hard. The rest was where to decrease to give what shape and things like that. I learned a lot.
This yarn is loud enough to not want to keep it in my bedroom at night. :eyebrow2:
Knitting the stuff was easier than crocheting it. After they were washed they were surprisingly soft!
Just to be sure you’re aware, this croc stitch is crochet; the knit croc stitch is very different looking. I worked it in the round, couldn’t see any reason to work flat and then seam. I got off somehow a few times and my rounds didn’t all begin at the same spot but it doesn’t show. This is worked on dc and I want to try tc and make larger scales.
Fashion sense is an individual thing. You and my daughter and granddaughter all like them. I guess my prob is that after all the crocheting it’s really hard to see the pattern.
If you’re going to do slippers you might want to know how I did them. The cuff is attached by sc to a stockinette top on the slipper. I did a bit of rib an inch or so from the top to snug them up just a little. Apparently it’s acceptable done that way.
I don’t remember where I first encountered the descriptor clown barf. I just thought it fit.
