Reading Is Key In Reading The Key

It's funny what a few days can do for a knitting basket. I finished knitting up all the blue yarns and now everything is going to be bright for a bit! The green and gold are the Anzula I bought two posts ago. All going well, I hope to have another sock design knitted up before the month is through.

The red is Wollmeise Sockenwolle 80/20 Twin in Hertzblut that Rachael got me when she went to Germany. It's becoming a pair of Woodpile Socks. So far so good. 
Although, I did get to do a little ripping. It was a little my fault, a little not. I didn't read the pattern key, I just knitted the cables like you do. I noticed pretty quick that it didn't look like the picture. Silly me, I knit the cables opposite of what the key said. In my defense, the symbols are the opposite direction of what cable symbols typically are. That being said, I have learned that I need to read symbol keys BEFORE knitting. It'll save time in the long run.

Most of what was in my knitting basket in the last post are designs that I can't show off just yet. But I did finish the Watch Cap for me. It's out of Knitwhits Freia Handpaints Ombre Worsted in the Denim color way. I am pleased. The brim can be folded up and probably will be when I wear it, but I wanted to show off the gradient.

In case anyone was wondering, I still haven't located my other hats.

Love the pretty colors in your basket this time around! I love blue too, but there's definitely something to be said for brights :D

Yay gradients! Nice hat.

I like that saffron yellow yarn. I flip-flop between blues and brights in my life too :)

Those colours are very pretty. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished products when you're done. Love the Woodpile socks, and your watch cap. You've got a good fit!

Your hat fits you so nicely!
Sorry to hear that you had some issues with your socks...I misread the key too at first.

I am working to finish up a scarf that would have been finished last week had I read the pattern first! It would have saved me a lot of grief and a lot of extra work.....sigh.....
