Yesterday we took a look at my lovely knit stitch. Today we will closer examine the purl.
Very normal. Nothing weird looking about this fabric.
So, why is that? If I pulling on my right needle on the knit side, I should be doing the same action on the purl side and you should be able to notice it right?
Or, am I just thinking about this too much? (probably - but remember it keeps me entertained through miles of stocking stitch...)
I pulled out some other pieces with stocking stitch and it appears that sometimes I have a very even, parallel looking stitch.
These socks look fine:
This sweater looks fine:
Both of the above are knit it fibers with less give (socks in a soy blend, sweater in mercenized cotton) and I wonder if that's part of it.
I suppose the outcome is the most important thing - a beautifully handknit object. Crazy knit stitches or otherwise.
