But, they are done. Nancy Bush, Knitting Vintage Socks - Gentleman's Half Hose in Ringwood Pattern. Done with Sundara sock yarn. Colorway: Dahlia on size 00 needles. Modifications: I made them shorter due to having less yarn than the pattern called for. Decreased as I approached the ankle. No breaking of the yarn as called for when doing the heel. I couldn't figure out why I would do so - I fudged it and it's just fine. I like the French Heel a lot, it fits me very well. The round toe is fine but I wouldn't choose to use it on another pair of socks.
I'm in a great state of Finish-itis and am working on completing my Landslide jacket. It is, um, a little small though. I think I can pick up stitches along the side seams and fake my way into having a great sweater. Then, on to Storm.
I continue to prepare for my three day Sew-In at the end of the month by cutting out LOTS of pants and blouses, making up the bias strips I like to use along the edges and generally filling zip lock baggies with sewing stuff. Every now and again I sew something up for me. A very simple blouse for kicking around in the summer.
While sewing I occasionally get audited by the Kittie Police.
KP: Are you sure this fabric suits you?
EE: I love this fabric! What are you trying to say here?
KP: It's a little loud. Just saying...
Rudbeckia and something pink I was sure I would never forget the name of.
