so much yarn... so little time!


clown colors

I couldn't get rid of the desire to modify the heel on the Intuitive Shell sock pattern. So here is another go, using up some yarn that had been waiting for such a time as this. :)

This time, I did the heel completely separately and whipstitched it in when I got to that part of the foot, heading up towards the cuff. It wasn't quite what I had in my head, but it didn't do too badly.

I'll be doing this pattern again for the sake of the heel. ...The slight obsession with this pattern amuses me a bit. Happily, it is a fun pattern to work with. I do enjoy the variations that are possible. :D


bias work

I was stashbusting again, and here is the result. I did have to buy some more yarn to finish this up, which means it wasn't totally stashbusting, but my end result was less yarn in my closet than when I started. Which means the goal of managing the stash before it manages me, is a bit closer. :)

The blanket was worked on the bias, using Caron Brites, and my trust J hook. That hook is a great tool; I love it!

Simple color changes along the way, and some random color bits thrown in for good measure. It is a cheery lap blanket, and I hope it makes the recipient smile. I certainly enjoyed putting it together.
