Now Listening: Keely Smith: On the Sunny Side of the Street
You know things have been gathering dust when you do not know exactly the last time you did something. In this case, posted to this journal.
*looks it up* Oh dear. A whole week since I did something. Oops.
At least I have the 364 Photo-A-Day with me still, right?
I have finally begun to make the companion of the other toe-up sock that I knitted in 2012. When Second Sock Syndrome hits, it hits hard.
Actually, I need to redo that first one, simply for the fact that I forgot the entire pattern how to do it. Thankfully, with this one, I am writing down things. Lots of things. I might make a pattern just to immortalize it.
Last night, I was looking for a decent instruction for toe-up heels, and getting nothing.
Until one of the fellow knitters on Tumbler (TheKnittingPirate) mentioned gusset heels and handed me a pattern. Well, you can see the results.
Another reason why I need to redo the first one. This was a very interesting way of heel turning, and I like it. Might make this my number one way of doing heels for toe-up socks now. If I ever finish making a pair.
Also, I’m making a hat.
A hat commission: A classmate wanted to make her a hat with the yarn, and I agreed to do it. I have to hurry though, because it isn’t cold anymore, and I have no idea when it will be cold again.
