Well, I got your attention, didn't I? heheh...
Here's my helper for today's post...
See? He's feeling so much better he's helping mom at the computer!
So today's post is about how I make kitchener stitch, if not *easy*, at least easier!
Now what on earth is this? A wooden light bulb? A marital aid? nah...
I do the kitchener stitch in the usual manner but I never worry about the tension of my stitches while I'm making them. That's where the darning egg comes in.
I slip my freshly off the needles, kitchenered toe over my darning egg...loosely tensioned stitches and all.
Now, the stitches are taught against the darning egg and oh so much easier to see!! I tighten them up stitch by stitch, using the end of my sewing needle.
It may not be the cure for cancer but it certainly makes it much easier for me to do the dreaded kitchener stitch!!
And here are the finished socks.
