The Síguelo socks are slowly coming along… though I fully admit that I’m not besotted with them. I’m now at the heel on both socks but I just can’t decide what type of heel to do. I did start a regular old heel flap on sock #1 which looks, meh, just so-so. I may try a short row heel on sock #2 to see which I like better. Any suggestions?
During my weekend away at Autumn House Farm I cast on for the Shawl Cardigan by Simona Merchant-Dest. I’m using the Bugga! yarn I got for Xmas. I was knitting very tightly to achieve gauge and consequently ended up with a fabric that could stand up on its own (not to mention sore hands from the death grip I had on my needles). Fortunately I had knit only 5″ so it wasn’t overly traumatic to rip back to the ribbing and start over. I’m pleased with the drape of the fabric now.
Yesterday I received a package. It contained some lovely Foot Notes yarn in the colorway Meadow by Fiber Optic. I really love this yarn. It’s super soft and knits up like a dream. I think this yarn will make some sweet April socks.
