Friday night I finally figured it out-- the toe-up heel flap for a non 60 stitch sock. (These are 72.) I've decided that Raupe isn't just a sock yarn for a small, select number of knitters-- it's also, well, let's just say the colorway doesn't grow on you the more you knit it. (I might even say it's a bit... ugly.) Last Tuesday I was at a party and someone referred to them as 'beautiful'. I couldn't stop my nose from scrunching up. I'm going to persevere and finish the socks before summer ends!
Adventures in hand-painted yarn The second Junior High Eyeshadow sock was started over the weekend, too. These each have 66 stitches around, and are knit from each end of the ball. Look how radically different the patterning is! The yarn is just luscious to knit. It's my first cashmere! Ok, 30% cashmere. (Again, thanks for the lovely gift.) If you want to give it a try, it's Lucia from Posh Yarns.
