I ‘ve made quite a bit of progress on my Candy Cane Sweet Tomato Heel sock 1. This is a different version of a short row heel. I like the technique. The instructions were a bit vague as to length. I’m knitting a toe-up and had to start the heel when the sock reached the spot where my ankle and foot hinged. As you can see from the picture, they fit well..Due to my pattern change on these socks and the addition of a knitted gift, I’m a bit behind but will still be done by the time all the gifts have to be given. I’m hoping the socks will be finished mid-week.I haven’t done any spinning since mid-October and really would like to add it back into the schedule starting Monday.


Remember my Night at the Gruene in Fibre Company Acadia. I had pattern issues then changed the neckline. I was never really happy with the piece and wore it once and was even more unhappy and pretty sure it would live in a drawer. So have been debating frogging and re-purposing the yarn for several weeks now. I was concerned that the yarn would not frog well because it’s slubby. I finally decided that I wasn’t going to wear the piece so losing the yarn wouldn’t be a big deal. The piece is now frogged and the yarn is okay. The Lupine will be fingerless mitts. and the blueberry will be Quaker Ridge Shawlette.

Temptaitons today are from Desert Vista Dyeworks. The colorwayrs are Blue Christmas and Holiday Stripes. Blue Christmas will be a shawl. The Holiday Stripes are two half skeins–one with wide color stripes and the other with wide white stripes. I’d like to have enough Christmas socks so that I don’t have to wash socks every three days in December so the Holiday Stripes will be socks.
