That feels so much better.....

After being annoyed with the Ribby Pulli for so long, it feels incredibly freeing to have ripped back, fixed and gotten it back onto the needles.
I am up to the neck shaping now, sooooo close to being done.

The next dilemma comming up is the neck. I am not sure if I want to go with the funnel neck in the pattern or if I will change it to a ribbed roll neck.

Any thoughts?

I started the Madder Ribbed Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks - Nancy Bush

The yarn is Hot Socks by Lincraft. While not a spectacular yarn it is a ginormous improvement over spotlight's adore yarn.

I am enjoying this, it is ribbed, but not so ribbed that it is killing my hands ribbed.

Recent discussions about random balls of yarn and teaching a friend to crochet has inspired be to pick up the hook again.

This will be a scrappy blanket.
Blues, blacks, greys.

No particular method or order in colour sequence - I will keep going till I am either sick of using a particular colour or run out.

No timeframe for finishing.

Simply a way to make use of those random balls of yarn that aren't enough to make anything out of.

Wish I had the desire to work all those scraps into a blanket. But blankets just wear me out!

I think rolled neck with ribbing. But it's your neck!

What is your favourite neckline? Will you be wearing anything underneath that should/n't peek over the edge? Either way 'twill be a very elegant (dare I say 'chic'???) knit - nice work!
And the scrappy blanket - must surely beat garter-stitch stripes for using up those random balls!

Still jealous of your access to Lincraft, and have fingers in my ears going la-la-la about adore sock yarn - I have two skeins to use up....
But that's ok. If I hate it, my son's not fussy!!! *evil grin*
