Well I'm still working on my socks. I cast off the first one yesterday afternoon and cast on the pair that evening. I've not got much done yet but that's ok because it will be some nice knitting for the car tomorrow
My next project will be another pair of Toe Up socks knitted in this beautiful yarn by Laughing Yaffle in a colourway called Dazzle
I'm going to use Judy's magic cast on for the toe again as I really like how it looks. I'm not sure what sort of heel to do though. I've done a Short Row heel using wrapped stitches and a Sweet Tomato heel but I'm not happy with either of them. Does anyone have any favourite techniques they'd recommend I try? I've heard of slip stitch heels, gusset heels and eye of partridge heels.
Anyways, as the title of this post says I have a FO to show off too. These are my Recycled socks which were frogged from another pair of socks that didn't fit very well and so I wasn't wearing them. I'm much happier with these :-)
Ok, so I don't have the ankles for modelling socks but who cares! I have warm, cosy and colourful feet, what more can you want lol
The yarn was by Flamboyance Yarns in their Box of Crayons colourway. I prefered how the yarn looked on the toes and heels as I think it mixed better rather than having the big pink stripes. I still like them though :-)
I'm dashing off this morning but I'll be back in the afternoon to check out some more WIP Wednesday posts at Tami's Amis. Thanks for dropping by :-)
