This Fiber Trends pattern is absolutely terrific. It's easy to memorize and such a no-brainer that this first sock (literally), sprang completed off my needles and I don't remember knitting it. I can foresee it now; for the rest of my life, when I'm holding a ball of sock yarn and patternless, I'll think, 'Oh, I'll use that Fiber Trends pattern again!' This yarn is also super comfortable once knitted up and on the foot. I'm looking forward to enjoying these socks this fall.
My 'Wrap Sweater with Sleeves' on the other hand (now on less slippery bamboo needles), is not going to be so painless. I love the fisherman's rib, but so far I have come up with NO EASY WAY to correct a dropped stitch using fisherman's rib with such fluffy yarn, and any mistakes mean that I must tink back carefully and remain as patient and calm as I possibly can. I've only done this once so far. I'd say lesson learned but I'm being so careful to begin with. Fisherman's Rib does not naturally produce beautiful selvages (the weaver in me is aghast), but as this garment will be stretched about the body and tied, I don't think it will matter.
