Originally, I had finished this first sock of the pair, only to find out when I had nearly finished it and weighed the amount of yarn left on my new trusty electric scales that I didn't have enough for the second sock, so I have ripped it back to 12 pattern repeats at the ankle, instead of the 18 originally called for, and I am now for some strange reason unable to complete the heel!
I don't know what it is but somehow I just cannot get it to line up properly, so although I love the pattern and it will be a relief to get this yarn used and out of my stash I am going to set it aside for a couple of weeks and try and finish my Berry Socks instead. Hopefully if I come back to it at a later date I will be less frustrated and more open to figuring out what I have done wrong.
So watch this space!
I am also however determined not to cast on any new projects until I have finished one of the 3 I have in progress, and I get itchy fingers quite quickly, so I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't take long for me to have them sorted.
This is the cup cuddler that I mentioned I was going to knit in my last post, isn't it cute? It is currently wrapped around a glass jar, and originally I only put it there for taking the photo but I have had a bit of an idea and think that a few of them around jars with little tea lights in them or mini votive candles would make lovely little decorations, especially if I made one with a more lace based pattern.
This one was made from this pattern, with 2 strands of my Katia Merino held together, which I have now completely used up! I do like to destash, and it got me some HPKCHC points too.
I shall have a larger update of the socky variety later today, be warned there will be venting!!
