A little later than usual for posting by me, but I had a doctor's appointment at 8:30 this morning, so didn't get to work till later than normal and have been (trying) to catch up.
But...Success!! Yesterday I took a longer than normal lunch break and managed to knit the Vikkel Braid on my red sock. I LOVE it!
Doesn't it look cool? I'll admit it was little fiddly to work (for me) - especially using DPNs (I think it would be pretty easy on straight needles or a circular, but the DPNs kept poking me - lol). No picture of where the sock is at this point, but I've done about 10 rows after the braid, and I think I will put another braid in and then just do plain old vanilla the rest of the way.
This is definitely a stitch I will be using again. If any of you are interested and haven't done this, the tutorial I found most helpful is Vikkel Braid Tutorial.
OK, gotta run - busy day here at work. Oh! and snow is in our forecast for tomorrow possibly...and Sigla is dry!! Maybe I'll get to wear her tomorrow.
