hang on a second!

Whoa, whoa, whoa. I was just digging in a portion of the stash (yep) and found the third ball of Kidsilk Haze that I bought for the Treeline Striped cardigan – meaning, I only actually used two skeins, not three. And now I have an extra ball (along with an extra skein of the brown W4…hmmmm).

It’s like free yarn, or something!

Random sock-in-progress shot. I’m working on a toe-up gusset, trying to figure it out on my own without looking at the many available patterns.

    You know, that’s what I should do–work on a toe-up gusset and heel flap and figure out the math as I go along. I’ve used the various patterns out there, but I have thick ankles and am a tight knitter, which means that my socks usually end up having 80 stitches around the foot. I have yet to find a toe-up heel flap for that many stitches that looks the way I want it to and has the math done correctly. Good luck!

    Beautiful! I finished my Gingerbread dude socks at the end of December and love them – now I want to make other things to match them…

    I love the colours of that sock!

    So what are you going to make with your “free” yarn?

    I just wanted to thank you for your short row heel tutorial. I used it as a guideline when I was making what felt like a million zillion Christmas stocking ornaments.

    Hi – thanks for the tutorial on short row heels. I’m going to try that out on my 2nd pair of socks, if I ever finish this first pair! Love the stripey pattern in your latest socks – can I ask what kind of needles you’re using in that photo?

    Y’know, I just did the heel of a toe-up gusset (& used a Wendy Johnson pattern) and I LOVED IT!!!! As I was knitting it, I thought, this has got to be the best darn thing ever.

    Just catching up on some blog reading and read through some of your recent posts. I am sorry to read that you are having to endure some heartache as that is very painful. I hope you reach a time of peace.
    But, your hair looks great and the VBCardi is terrific. Here’s to happiness in the New Year.
