By using lunchtimes and the drive time back and forth to last weekend’s fiber festival, I have finally gotten to the heel part. It is an afterthought heel, so the waste yarn is in, and now I’m starting on the leg part. I have an inch and a half or so to go, then it’s time to do intarsia in the round!
At that point I plan to slip them onto double point needles and do them one at a time. The intarsia part is on the “outside” side of the calf for each sock, so I think for this first try with this technique I will take it easy 🙂
It’s Monday, so the latest clue for the Perfect Blend MKAL shawl was released. These socks are calling me to get moving, but my fingers appreciate the break with bigger needles for a little while!
How are your projects going? Are you getting any knitting done in spite of the summer heat?
