Here are four repeats of the hem, knit on US7 needles.
It looks so...loose, but I guess that's the point. I'm just not used to the look because I'm more familiar with crocheting lace, where thin cotton yarn and a tiny needle give you very crisp stitches and a defined pattern.
The color is 'bleached', which is a milky white. I may end up dipping this in hibiscus tea once it's done, to give it a hint of color.
And here is a peak at one of my orchid socks. It is in limbo at the moment, mid-calf high and awaiting a fancy don't know what yet bind-off. I'm past the ankle on the second sock. I wanted to make them knee-highs, but have had trouble getting the increases to look good. I wonder if it's better to make knee-highs top-down instead of toe-up? Anyone know?
The colors in this picture are incredibly accurate...what with all the gloom outside.
