Blimey

Why do I keep forgetting that one skein of Glacier is not enough to knit a pair of men's socks?


Oh well. It's my last skein of the stuff. I won't have this particular problem again.

I made these using the heel method from Fleegle's pattern. I love this heel. It's beautiful and it's easy. I want to experiment to see if the fit is ruined by making the heel base a tad wider -- it's a little too pointy for my taste, but that's a minor quibble.

I can't comment about knitting, but about books: if you like such titles as Phillip Pullman, may I suggest 'Outcasts Of Skagaray' as another one to try? For a free preview, go to www.threeswans.com.au and see the sample chapters. I would be delighted if you read and enjoyed it, but in any event, best wishes.

OMG - did you just get book spam? Weird.

I like the Blimey Socks - so the cuffs are short - big deal. Get some darker green and make them longer, or just use for anklets. :-)
