See this sock?
The cuff? Yeah – nice, right? See the heel? Also nice. The cuff is supposed to look like the heel. D’oh.
I’m soldering-on and will replicate my mistake on the second sock, but it would have been nice to have something that looks like the pattern Debi made.
Since Clue 2 is finished, I’ve started the second sock and made reasonable progress this evening.
Another Clue 2 which has been successfully completed is the Woolly Wormhead Mystery Beret KAL.
In other news …
I’ve started what is turning out to be the world’s worst washcloth
It’s supposed to have straight sides. It does not. And there I was, thinking I’d finally cracked this crochet racquet.
Speaking of ball sports, I’ve also made a start on my mum’s cricket vest
I know. Singularly unimpressive, but there it is. I’m working both the back and front simultaneously to avoid Second Sock Vest Syndrome. The yarn is O-Wool Balance in proper Lancashire and England cricketing colours of red (well, it’s a bit pink, really) and cream.
Thanks and tech-talk
Finally, a quick thanks to all the compliments on my shawl. I had a kind of rough week with family stuff and it was wonderful to wake up to those comments. I’ve worn the shawl 3 or 4 times since I finished it and it’s so versatile. (Not an advert, promise) I know the price of the finished pattern seems steep, but I worked out that you can have over 200 variations from one pattern. Seriously.
And finally, finally; the comment reply thingy is working now and I can reply to comments and have them show up right here. This will help in keeping discussions going and also allow me to answer questions so that everyone can see them. WordPress will, eventually, have threaded comments like some online forums you may have seen.
This means if Person B replied to Person A’s comment, it will show up in that way. Anyway, it’s cool and a bit geeky, but there you have it!
Catch y’all on the flip side. Or not. Whatever! 😀
