My 6-stitch slip stitch pattern is working really well. At least I think it is. (Quilted Lattice pattern - see previous post for pattern.)
I put on 66 sts for a ladies sock (about 6 sts extra) and am knitting at about 8 sts = 1" on 2.25mm needles. The slip stitch is going to pull the fabric in but not as much as I thought it might. It's working out well with the striped wool.
As you can see there is quite a bit of variation in the colour but I like that the slipped stitches seem to fade away in spots.
If you'd like to join our knit along, send an email to Deb (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she'll, in turn, send you a invitation. You'll be able to make blog entries, post your pictures and ask questions from the group. Let us know your progress!
