The sister's socks are finished, and delivered last Saturday, which was her birthday.
and so I started some more...
I was in the mood for something bright. The black strip is going to be yanked to make a Peasant Heel. You pull out the waste yarn, pick up the live stitches each side, and knit a "toe". Sounds simple. Not sure why all heels are not done this way! lol. I don't much care for short-row heels, and I haven't tried gusset heels with toe-ups yet.
If anyone was wondering about the cushion, it was the toe of Kel's second sock. I realized, after a while, that it was much pointier than the first sock... I'd cast on 16 instead of 24. So I turned it into a teeny cushion. I hate frogging things Ü
And surprise, surprise; I got some yarn. Bendigo Woollen Mills sent me a card with samples of the new Alpaca Rich yarn (55% alpaca and 45% wool). I rang them and got some in "apple" and "denim" and "mocha" the next day!
I just need to finish some WIP's so I can use up some of this stuff. hehe. I need to make a bit of space for whatever I'm getting in Bendigo next month. Perhaps I should be on a Yarn Diet until then... :?
