Make n’ Tell Challenge: Day 37

Still working on the mystery knit. The most recent instructions have me knitting an additional 16". I'm almost there and the strip will be 30.5" long when I finish this step. Any guesses? I could search on Ravelry and figure it out from the suggested yarn given, but I'm trying to be good and let it be a mystery until the end. What will this thing end up being?!?

I also finished the second repeat on the sock and knit 13 rows of the heel flap. Here's a tip - trust your intuition! I was at knit night when I started the heel flap, which has a charted pattern. The very first row I looked at it and said, "that's wrong". Then I looked at it some more, figured they must be doing something I couldn't yet see and knit 13 rows. I looked at it just as it was time to leave. "That's definitely wrong!" The center cables were reversed (knit where there were supposed to be purls & purls instead of knits). Stupid pattern. I came home & checked online - sure enough, there was errata for the pattern. What I initially thought was wrong was, and if I did what I knew I should have done I would not have to rip out those 13 rows & do them again. Oh well.

  1. Wow. I didn't realize the mystery project was a mystery to you as well! Now I'm even more intrigued.
