What you see here are three attempts at getting a non-rolling hem on the Riddari. As you can see it's not going well. The top band is actually two different attempts. First I used the slip stitch trick from MDK. Didn't work. Then I knit the end of that rolling hem into the work to see if that would tame it. Didn't work.
You'd think I'd given up but here is try number 4. I'm going to just ignore the rolled hem/ribbing hybrid thing from the pattern and just knit a plain old ribbed hem. A big one. One that hopefully will stay where it belongs. I'm pretty darn tired of casting this thing on but I'm not ready to have it beat me yet. In fact, I'm obsessed.
The White Tea and Pear did NOT play nicely however. It accelerated very quickly and it was very messy pour or should I say plop. I had to beat it on the floor so many times to settle the thick batter in the mold that The Mister had to come upstairs to see what the heck was going on. I can't wait to cut this one. It's going to be interesting.
