FFN: For the Tiny Humans
So the thrill of baby knits continues. I think the sheer fact that they are so easy combined with the fact that they are darn fast is making them my go to right now. I ended up knitting another Puerperium cardigan, this time in the KP Felici sport weight of Stream Bed. I think I may be more taken by this colorway knit up than the last one. I did opt for no mods and knit the seven buttons on, I think it looks fine, but I haven’t decided if I like it more. This one was forced to have a reknit because I some how messed up a stitch count and had to frog half the thing. But even with that, it was still a pretty short knit time. I am really enjoying the ease of this pattern and the possible varieties.
In other news: We went to visit my in-laws this past weekend, and being in a shingle induced haze of pain I attempted to start a toe up sock. It was going fine until I realized I must have messed up the cast on stitch count (it was way to small in the toe) so a question for you other sock knitters. Can I not cast on the same number of stitches that I end up with if I were to do cuff down? In other words when I make cuff down socks I decrease at the toe until there are x number of stitches and then seam close. My question is can I not use that x number to cast on if I am to do toe up? Any thoughts? Send me a response in the comments, and you will have my eternal gratefulness.
