Days 10 & 11: A Mixed Bag

Well, Day 10 was a bit of a bust. I reviewed Decreasing and Increasing, but from a new source. There wasn’t anything there that I haven’t read and/or seen before. In fact, all of the information covered things I have used in my own projects already. That was bound to happen at some point, I suppose!

Day 11 was a little better. I read about different types of cast-on techniques that work well for socks. I read about them here, and this will likely become a reference for me in the future. They even included one of my favorite cast ons for hat projects – the long-tail cast on. I’ll have to look for some toe-up patterns for a near-future project so I can try the Turkish cast on, it seems interesting! Interesting fact of the day: Sock patterns that are knit top-down are much more common that patterns that are knit toe-up.
