Yarn Pr0n Friday IV
It's that time of the week again on the old bloggy thing. So what have I been working with lately? Knit Picks Dancing in the "Swing" colorway. And what have I been making with it? See over in the sidebar there, the "Best Foot Forward Socks" - formerly known as "2 on 2 socks". I ditched that idea when I became frustrated with how long it was taking. So I took one off, and this is where I'm at as of this morning: Interesting, you say? What does the pattern look like, you ask? Mini cables. I really like the way they're looking. It's a shame that the yarn competes with it. I will find an appropriate pattern for the rest of my Dancing collection, but I still like how this is looking. I'm nearly to the heel flap. This cuff is a bit longer than what I've done previously, it needs to be 7 1/2" long before I turn the heel. And after changing needles, it does hug the curve of the calf quite nicely. "But, Cristi, haven't you been working on the Green Gable?" Why yes, yes I have. I finally got to the point where I could try it on, and I'm very happy with the fit so far. But I'm not going to post one of those pics with me wearing half a shirt. Sorry, y'all. It ain't gonna happen. Not even if you looked at me like that.
