Soaked, tossed in the dryer for a bit, then re-shaped.
Worn for a forty minute walk. And a day at work.
new to me...eye of partridge heel
Conclusion → Suh-weet! A most useful pattern that makes a good sock, from an excellent yarn.
Details: Walking in the Maize, by KyleAnn Williams (Crystal Palace Yarns) I simplified and shortened the cuff. I wanted to use just one skein of yarn. Which I did. Regia Silk 4-ply, 200 yards, 55% Wool, 25% Nylon, 20% Silk. A blend that is like buttah to knit!
Next time, I might start the ribbing a bit earlier, and the cuff a bit longer.
I am continuing on Eldest’s February Lady Sweater, and have about 10” of the body complete. So good there.
And I will be starting another pair of socks….exactly like these, with a different yarn blend.
I am feeling the need to start something new and different and challenging. I have been looking over my Ravelry queue and matching up my stash with potential and probable projects.
I don’t know. I just don’t know.
It was mentioned at the spinning workshop that knitting with our handspun is a sure-fire way to become a better spinner. Perhaps I could start there…
Of course. There is the matter of the languishing quilt. But I have A Plan. Oh yes. A Plan with a capital P. And I will carry through with it when I know exactly what it is. And how it is going to work.
