My crochet hook arrived this morning so I can get on with the bag flap later on.
Here is my first ever toe-up sock, using magic cast on from knitty. The first couple of wrong decreases don't look too bad there but when you stretch the toe there are definate little holes. I was picking up the strand between the stitches from the back instead of the front, but I did it right after checking on the wonderful interweb. Nice colour? (Click the top pic to see the lovely silkiness in close-up.)
I don't know whether to just do a short row heel or a gussett heel. I might try the gussett, just cos I haven't done it before. A short row heel would just be the same as from the top down so no challenge, I like to have a go at something that challenges me.
Sad news from My Pwllheli Friend. He is not going to be writing his blog anymore. He has recently returned to full time work and hasn't got the time anymore. It was me that gave him the idea to do it in the first place. Never mind, you have to get your priorities right. So farewell VincentBlackShadow :o(
