Working away on Valtos. No pic today, but I am close to completing the first sleeve. I’m well into the sleeve cap decreases so I’ll be able to start the second sleeve tonight.
Here for your entertainment is a photo of my sock-in-progress.
And here is a close-up of the heel. Can you stand the excitement?
It’s a short row heel with double wraps. That’s my current fav. It really eliminates those pesky heel-holes for me.
After Valtos, I think I’m gonna knit . . . (drum roll) . . .
Yep. I’ve made one Fulmar and gave it away. I have a bunch of olive green five-ply guernsey wool that I bought via mailorder this summer from Frangipani Knitwear in the U.K. that’s been calling out to me. So I’m thinking I’m gonna knit Fulmar out of it.
Aside: Frangipani Knitwear has sixteen colors of five-ply guernsey wool at extremely reasonable prices. And their service was excellent.
For those of you who don’t know — Fulmar is the design that is on the cover of Alice Starmores Aran Knitting.
Got a catalog in the mail from a company called Knitpicks — I think this is the second catalog they’ve sent me. Very nice full-color catalog with lots of photos of projects and yarn. Anyone ordered from them?
Y’all have a good weekend, hear?
