Apparently, when I want to, I can knit quite fast.
Heel turned, on to the leg, all in 4 days. For me, this is incredible!
It helps that I can knit this while watching TV or talking to someone (my two favourite activities apart from knitting!) so it’s just gone crazy-fast.
I’ve never done a yarnover short row heel before and I’m not sure if I’ve done it right (is there a right way to do anything, apart from surgery?) but it looks like a heel and quacks fits like a heel, so I’m guessing it’s a heel!
On to other works in progress:
No progress on this yet, for the same reasons as last time (need to concentrate, cant concentrate!)
This is the swatch/tension square I’ve done with the O-Wool Balance:
The yarn is very soft and you can feel the wool in it, but it seems to knit up more like a plant fibre than an animal fibre. Still, this is exactly what my mum wanted, so who am I to argue?
Has anyone else knit with this yarn? My mum is likely to want to machine wash the finished garment and although it says to hand wash, I was wondering if anyone had risked it on a gentle machine cycle? I’m willing to sacrifice the swatch if necessary, but I’d like to have other people’s knowledge at hand first!
