A little doodling

Be sure to read about the giveaways I’ve entered, at the end of this post.

First about the sock. I finished it and am now in the process of undoing the binding because it is too tight! I tried to do it loosely, but I guess it wasn’t loose enough. I’m going to use larger needles when I do it again. Only problem is, I suspect it won’t be tight enough this time and the socks will fall down my leg!

Several years ago I took a course at Quilt University by Raymond Houston on his Symmetry design techniques. Recently he started a new blog for his work and a new mailing list, called NGQ Tile Addicts, for people who like to play with his symmetry design tiles. He gives you a set of his tiles to print out in regular and mirror image. Join the group to see what it’s all about. It’s really fun.

Here is something I came up with using the tiles.

  1. Hello, do not panic about the bind off. You are a privileged one - a crocheter. So instead of playing with the knitted bind off, treat your little stitches to the crochet one. Just do simple crochet all the way around, or picot if you are feeling playful. Your socks will thank you.
